Peppy Macaroni Recipe

"I like to keep an extra box of macaroni and cheese on the pantry shelf to make this fun pizza-flavored casserole for unexpected guests," relates Helen Cluts of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Because it's a snap to prepare, older kids could assemble it to give Mom and Dad a bread from dinner duties.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. + standing YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 package (7-1/4 ounces) macaroni and cheese dinner
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 jar (8 ounces) pizza sauce
  • 40 slices pepperoni (about 2-1/2 ounces)
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  • 1. Prepare macaroni and cheese according to package directions. Fold in eggs.
  • 2. Spread into a greased 3-qt. baking dish. Top with pizza sauce, pepperoni and mozzarella. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned and cheese is melted. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 4 servings.
