Reviews for Pizza Macaroni & Cheese
"My kids loved this. Made as directed except for green pepper. No one likes them. I also make mac n cheese casserole with my home made chilli. Kids like that also.........so now I have two same (but different taste) casseroles to put into rotation."
"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 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!"
"Tried this tonight and we both liked it. I am bringing the leftovers to work tomorrow."
"Simple and easy recipe. It's like a combination of Mac&cheesse and Pizza. Which kids love. Will make it again."
"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."
"I made it as stated. Looked good on paper but was terrible in reality."
"This was really easy to put together and it was really tasty. I left the peppers out because DH and the kids don't care for them. Yummy!"
"This was very easy, my husband really enjoyed it. I forgot the pizza sauce, but I had an extra can of diced tomatoes with basil and oregano. I put that in the small food processor I have and made my own sauce. It worked well and tasted just fine. I made it for my husband and I and these types of casseroles are great for leftovers...lunch and dinner!"
