Pizza Casserole

I have adapted this from a recipe that we ate growing up that was given to my parents by a family friend. I took it from simple to gourmet with just adding a few ingredients. You can easily make this a vegetarian dish by omitting the ground meat and the pepperoni. I tend to use sausage more than beef because it gives more flavor' but I suggest you try it out for yourself!

Cook:

25 Min

Ingredients

1 lb
ground beef or sausage
2-3 c
egg noodles or twists (rotini)
1/2 can(s)
chopped onions, divided
2 can(s)
pizza sauce, divided
1 can(s)
mushroom pieces, drained
1 pkg
pepperoni (small ones are better)
2 c
mozzarella cheese, shredded, divided

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Brown meat, add some onions to it for flavor. I use sausage but beef works just as well.
2
Boil noodles according to package directions, drain
3
Mix cooked meat with the remainder of the onions, half of the pepperoni, mushrooms and one can of pizza sauce and 1/2 to 3/4 cup of cheese
4
Spread meat mixture on the bottom of a 9 X 13 pan. I prefer to use glass pan because it cleans up so much easier.
5
Mix noodles with remaining pepperoni, 1/2 to 3/4 cup cheese and remaining pizza sauce
6
Spread noodle mixture evenly over meat mixture
7
Top with remaining cheese and bake in 350 oven for 25 to 30 minutes until everything is cooked through and cheese is melted
