1/2 lb lean ground beef
5 small fresh mushrooms, halved
1/3 C chopped onion
1 can (8oz) tomato sauce
1 (3.5oz) package pepperoni slices
2 Tbsp sliced ripe olives

3/4 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp pepper

1/4 C shredded mozzarella

Cook macaroni according to package directions.  Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef, mushrooms, and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.  Stir in the tomato sauce, pepperoni, olives, sugar, Italian seasoning and pepper.
Drain macaroni; add to meat mixture.  Transfer to a 1 1/2 quart baking dish coated with cooking spray.  Sprinkle with cheeses.  Bake uncovered at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.
