31 Meals in 31 Days: Pizza Casserole

For day 11 I borrowed a recipe from my sister. She told me that her family loves it when she makes them her pizza casserole recipe, so I decided to give it a try. I used venison pan sausage in this recipe, but it can be made with ground beef, ground turkey, or ground chicken.

Pizza casserole

Ingredients:

1 pound ground meat

2 jars pizza sauce

10 oz cooked rotini noodles

1 1/2 cups shredded cheese

1 small package pepperonis

 

To make:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown meat in skillet, drain well, and return to skillet. Add pizza sauce and noodles to meat and combine well. In a 9 x 13 inch baking dish scoop in some meat mixture, top it with cheese, and layer pepperonis on top of the cheese. Then add another layer of meat mixture, top with cheese, and top with pepperonis.

Here is mine before I put it in the oven:

Pizza casseroleI used a combination of mozzarella and cheddar cheese. My family loves cheese, so the cheesier the better!

Bake casserole in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until it is bubbly and the cheese is melted.

This made a lot of casserole, I was actually able to make this 9 x 13 dish and another smaller dish of it and over the next few days we ate it all, the leftovers didn’t last long and it made a good lunch for my hubby to take to work.

    I just made this last night and it was very easy, quick and delicious! Can’t wait to make it next time because I’m going to make it a supreme pizza casserole and add green pepper, onions and sausage! This is definitely a must make!
