Reviews for Pepperoni Casserole
"This was so good and so easy! For me it tasted more like lasagna with pepperoni on top but I didn't mind! I had to cut the recipe in half because that's all the elbow mac I had in the pantry. My husband and I ate all of it, and wished we had leftovers. Next time I'll know better and buy enough elbow mac! Oh and I didn't change a thing. Tasted awesome! I will definitely make this again."
"easy, yummy and taste just like pizza. I add mushrooms, peppers and onions....but that is what we like. Add anything you want or delete what you do not want. You will love this!!!"
"Did not use olives. My family was pleasantly surprised."
"Loved this easy pizza tasting dish. I used eggbeaters instead of eggs, low fat sour cream, reduced fat mozzarella cheese and turkey pepperoni with a lower salt content and of course whole grain pasta. It is great in a pinch if you don't have time to thaw out some meat for a meal last minute too. Add some veggies or salad on the side and good to go any time."
"This has become one of our favorite meals! Always delicious, and very easy. I leave out the black olives, as my kids don't like them. I have made this several times in the past month. It's a keeper!"
"this is good and easy to make, kids love it i made it without the back olives! will make again!"
"I used the same toppings that I would use on regular pizza and everyone loved it. I would make it again."
"<p>Oh, totally yummy! I can't wait to try this. Sounds scrumptious. Uh..no one commented on sodium, cholesterol and fat content? Yahoooo! :) :) :) I'm free to be me! :) :) :) hee hee <3"
"My family really enjoyed this and let me know I could make it again! I made one and a half times the recipe and it worked great in a 9x13."
"My boyfriend and I love this! I made it with the mini-pepperoni bites since I'm not a huge pepperoni lover. I think it would taste good with sausage as well."
"Delicious! Left out the olives though."
"I've made this recipe four times now and we love it. My son and I enjoy the leftovers almost as much as fresh out of the oven. I find myself keeping pepperoni on hand now, something I've never done in my life!"
"My entire family loves this recipe! We've made it several times and have varied the toppings to everybody's current likes. We top it just like a pizza and give everybody a section to top."
"Delicious! Every member of my family loved this meal. Not one complaint even from the pickiest eater! I did use a Romano / asiago blend along with the parmesan. I made 1 1/2 times the ingredients for my family of five and had little left over."
"My grandson is very picky and he told me that i have to make this more often. I think i will try different toppings for variety."
"I made this dish to try something new and my whole family raved about this recipe. I was very pleased with how good this was."
