A casserole is a perfect one dish meal that can be both filling and tasty all at once. The pizza pasta casserole is one such dish. It brings together a perfect blend of ground beef, pasta, cheese, and sauce.
To prepare gather together 2 pounds of ground beef, 1 large onion, chopped, 3 ½ cups of spaghetti sauce, 1 package of spiral pasta, 4 cups of shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, and 8 ounces of pepperoni.
To make, cook the pasta in a pot of lightly salted water with a few drops of olive oil to prevent sticking; once cooked, drain the pasta.
Next over a medium flame, in a large skillet, cook the beef with in olive oil until the meat is no longer pink. Add the cooked pasta and spaghetti sauce. Transfer the mixture to a 13 inch x 9 inch baking dish and add cheese.
Arrange the pepperoni on top of the casserole and cover and bake at 350 degrees F for about 25 to 30 minutes. You may freeze any leftover unbaked casserole.
When ready, thaw the frozen casserole overnight and bake at 350 degrees for up to 40 minutes.
