A yummy casserole that is chock full of the most popular pizza toppings. I love serving this with salad and garlic bread. The leftovers are fantastic. I’ve made the recipe ahead of time and served it at potlucks using an slow cooker the following day.

I made this dish for dinner and everyone loved it. I made use of Italian sausage in place of ground beef, and angel hair pasta instead of egg noodles. I also substituted pizza sauce in place in place of the spaghetti sauce. I will definitely try it again.

I first saw this recipe on Facebook one day before and decided to give it a the go-ahead this evening. I left out the black olives and the mushrooms. I used one pound and a half of ground beef, and cooked the noodles. It didn’t seem like an issue doing it this method. I really loved the experience.

Ingredients:

1 lb. ground meat

Directions:

Boil salt and water for pasta. Once the water is boiling then add the pasta. The meat can be cooked in a separate pan. After pasta has been cooked then drain.
