Pizza Casserole: A Midwest Favorite

Turning pizza into a casserole might seem a little strange. But if you’re familiar with Midwestern cuisine, you’ll realize that it fits right in with some of the region’s other favorite foods.

Ingredients :

1 (10-ounce) bag of egg noodles

1 jar of tomato sauce (I use Ragu spaghetti sauce)

3 cups Mozzarella cheese, shredded

1 1/2 pound hamburger meat

1 package of pepperoni

Directions :

Brown the meat and drain the grease.

Boil Noodles until soft. Drain the water.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a 9×13 casserole dish, start layering by first spreading a thin layer of tomato sauce on the bottom.

Second layer half of the noodles over the sauce. Then half of the meat and the rest of the noodles.

Next layer half of the cheese, the rest of the meat, the rest of the sauce, and then the rest of the cheese.

Lastly, top with pepperonis.

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes remove foil and bake for another 15 minutes.

Once it is done baking, take it out and let if sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
