Pizza Macaroni & Cheese Recipe

My grandma made this for us once when she came to visit and I never forgot just how good it was. Since my kids love anything with pepperoni and cheese, I thought they'd enjoy it just as much as I did. —Juli Meyers, Hinesville, Georgia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 10, 2014

"Simple to prepare and leftovers taste great. I like this recipe because it is easy to customize to my family's taste. I chopped the pepperoni into quarters and microwaved it on some paper towel for 30 seconds to remove some of the fat before adding it to the top of the casserole. I will definitely be making this again."

MY REVIEW

"My family liked this because we could customize it to our own pizza topping preferences. It's a hearty meal and the leftovers the next day tasted even better!

Combining mac n cheese and pizza, who would'a thunk!"

"Simple and easy recipe. It's like a combination of Mac&cheesse and Pizza. Which kids love. Will make it again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 27, 2013

"Simple, easy and very kid-friendly. It is not gourmet, but it is very good. I tried several different casseroles over the span of a couple of weeks and this was by far the favorite of my husband and children. I will keep this recipe tucked away for when I need something quick and easy yet filling."
