I chose to use four ounces fresh baby bella mushrooms in this recipe instead of canned, I sauteed them with the onion and garlic. I also used garlic powder instead of garlic salt and red bell pepper instead of green. I did taste the sauce after simmering for a half hour and added more spices. If I made this sauce again, I'd add full teaspoons of all of the spices to start, except the salt. This was a simple sauce that came together quickly. The boys really liked that it had pepperoni. This would make a good goulash sauce.
