Recipe Notes

You will see more oil in this dish then you probably want, but this comes from the pepperoni, once the pepperoni is in the pan, you want to limit the time it cooks, the more it cooks the more the dish will look oily.
The pepperoni adds so much flavor, so you do need to let it spend some time in the pan combining with the other flavors.
