Ingredients For pizza casserole

  • 1 lb
    ground beef or Turkey
  • 1 jar
    Favorite pasta sauce
  • 1 box
    rotini pasta (you can use any bite size pasta)
  • 4 c
    Mozzerella Cheese
  • 1 pkg

How To Make pizza casserole

  • 1
    Boil pasta according to direction, but only for 6 1/2 minutes, still firm. While the pasta is cooking brown ground beef or turkey, then add your pasta sauce.
  • 2
    Once the pasta is ready combine the meat sauce and pasta together.
  • 3
    Preheat your over to 350, and spray a 9x14 glass baking dish with cooking spray. (You could also split this recipe into TWO 8x8 dishes and freeze one, just thaw to cook it.)
  • 4
    Place half of the pasta in the bottom, layer with pepperoni (I put them side by side and cover it). Then put 2 cups of mozzerella.
  • 5
    Add the remaining pasta, then 2 cups of mozzarella, then place pepperoni on top. I used to place the pepperoni UNDER the cheese, but liked the crispy pepperoni on the top better. You can do either way you like.
  • 6
    Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes. You can make this ahead of time, and refrigerate, it will just take longer to bake.
