We found this recipe in a kid's cookbook years ago. We altered it as our children got older. It is for kids both the young and old at Heart :-)

Ingredients

1 pkg
extra wide egg noodles (16oz) cooked and drainded
1 lb
ground beef
1 lb
bulk sausage (i use pork--can use italian)
1 pkg
pepperoni
2 jar(s)
pizza sauce (32 ounce)
2-4 c
mozzarella cheese (depending on how cheesy you want it)
1 pkg
mushrooms (sliced) (optional)
1
bell pepper-chopped (optional)
1
small onion-chopped (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
1-2 tsp
sugar (optional--i use to make sauce less acidic)

***PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 DEGREES***

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook noodles according to package directions.
2
While noodles are cooking, brown sausage and hamburger in a pan. Add pepperoni the last few minutes of cooking the hamburger/sausage. Drain the grease from the meat.
3
Also while noodles are cooking, saute vegetables of choice (if any) to add to casserole.
4
Add pizza sauce and vegetables to the meat mixture. Season with salt pepper and sugar. Warm for about 5 minutes. Toss noodles into the meat/sauce mixture.
5
Spray a nonstick cooking spray into a 9x13 casserole dish. Pour the mixture into the dish. Top with enough mozzarella cheese to cover the casserole. [The more cheese the better :-)!!]
6
Bake for 20-30 minutes at 350* (until bubbly).
7
You can make this as simple or as complex as you desire. IF you go for the simpler route (noodles, hamburger, pepperoni and sauce) only need 1 jar sauce and 8oz of noodles. If you go for the heartier version (all meats and veggies) use 2 jars sauce and 16 oz noodles.
