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***

Step-By-Step

1Cook noodles according to package directions.
2While 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.
3Also while noodles are cooking, saute vegetables of choice (if any) to add to casserole.
4Add 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.
5Spray 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 :-)!!]
6Bake for 20-30 minutes at 350* (until bubbly).
7You 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.
