2 . Deluxe Pizza Casserole
Some serious comfort food!
1 lb. hamburger
1/2 onion, diced
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 (24 oz.) jar spaghetti sauce
1 (3.8 oz.) can sliced black olives, drained
1 pkg. sliced pepperonis
1 lb. rotini spiral pasta
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook hamburger with Italian seasoning and onion until thoroughly cooked; drain and return to pan.
Add in spaghetti sauce, olives (set aside about 10 to 15 slices) and about 15 slices of pepperoni cut in half. Simmer on low for about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook pasta as directed on package. Drain and return to pot.
Mix in softened cream cheese and parmesan cheese. Mix well.
This recipe makes quite a lot so I made a 9×13 and then also a 8×8 to freeze for a later date. Start by placing a layer of the noodles down.
Evenly distribute meat mixture for next layer.
Top with mozzarella cheese and a little sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
Finish by topping with pepperonis and remaining olives.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Enjoy!
