My family loves when I make this. I throw in whatever I have at the time...this time it was ricotta cheese..tasted great..I normally add pepperoni to this also, but was fresh out...have also used Italian sausage.

This is one of those dishes that tastes even better the next day.

This casserole also freezes well..I hope you give it a try..
