Brown the meat, then add 1 cup of pepperoni, tomato sauce, and pizza sauce.
Cook pasta for less time than indicated on the box to prevent noodles from becoming mushy. Drain the pasta, then slowly add the milk and mozzarella cheese.
Combine the two mixtures in 9×13 inch pan. Add the Italian cheese and pepperoni.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Remove the foil and cook for 15 more minutes.
