Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is one good casserole and would be perfect to take to a pot luck. It's kind of like having a pizza, but easier to keep warm.

I like ground beef, sweet Italian sausage and pepperoni on my pizza so I used all three. Add whatever meats and seasonings to your liking. This dish was really easy to prepare and so tasty!


2 lb
your choice of meat - ground beef, italian sausage, ham, pepperoni
2 jar(s)
spaghetti sauce ( 2, 24 oz jars or 1 48 oz jar)
24 + oz
mozzarella cheese
1/3 c
Parmesan cheese
your choice of veggies, green pepper, onion, olives, your fave pizza toppings.
1 bag(s)
noodles, 1 lb, I like the bowties in this
your choice of veggies, olives, onion, mushrooms, green peppers, peppers, spinach ... whatever!

Directions Step-By-Step

Boil noodles to al dente.
Cook all meats with the exception of pepperoni.
Grease a 9x13x3 dish.
Dvide noodles, sauce and cheeses into 3rds.
Layer 1 noodles, sauce, cheese, 1 meat and veggie (ground beef and olives)
Layer 2 noodles, sauce, cheese, 1 meat and veggie (pepperoni and mushrooms)
Layer 3 noodles, sauce, cheese, 1 meat and veggie (Italian sausage and green peppers). Like I said, choose the things your family likes this is an example of what we like.
Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Let rest for 15 minutes so it can set up a bit... then DIG IN!
