I found this recipe in the 2009 Taste of Home Quick Cooking Annual Recipes. It was submitted to them by Shirley Kinner of Medford Wisconsin. Since I don't like mushrooms, they were left out. But I will list them in the ingredients, and you can leave them out if you like.When I made this, the dried minced onions were added with the ground beef and pepperoni.I think if you like a thicker sauce, you might want to cut the amount of water to 3/4 cup.
