I am a big fan of pasta casseroles and pizza. When I ran across this recipe, I knew I would love it! This was so simple to make. I cooked the meat while the noodles were boiling and just tossed it together. It took about 30 minutes from start to table. This would be a great casserole to make ahead of time and refrigerate for a few days to eat later in the week.
I used sausage and pepperoni in this casserole, but feel free to add peppers, onions or even mushrooms. You can really play with the meat and veggies in this casserole. We ate this for dinner and lunch the next day. It really reheated well. I would definitely make this again!
