Pizza Casserole

We all LOVE pizza in this house, especially the kids.  This sounds like a great recipe to try: 

Pizza Casserole from Nicole on The Jones Way blog
This was the pizza sauce I chose, but it came in a little jar, so I used 3.


  • 1 lb sausage (Jimmy Dean)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 large jar of pizza sauce, or plain spaghetti sauce
  • 4 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 pkg of pepperoni (I used 1 1/2 pkgs)
  • 1 pkg Wide Egg Noodles


Preheat oven to 350.

Boil your noodles according to package instructions. Ground up your sausage and brown it in a saute pan with the onion. Drain fat out of the pan and add the sauce. Let the sauce simmer for a couple of minutes. I sprinkled in a little bit of Italian Seasoning on top for added flavor. Time to assemble...

In a 9x13 pan layer half of the meat sauce on the bottom. Then add half of your noodles on top. Sprinkle half of the cheese on top of the noodles. Then cover the cheese with the pepperoni... and start all over. Sauce, noodles, cheese, pepperoni. Done.

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover the casserole and bake for an additional 15 minutes to make sure all the cheese is melted good. Take it out of the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes before serving and ENJOY!
