MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 10, 2014

I halved this recipe the first time I made it because if I didn't like it, I didn't want to be stuck with another whole casserole. There was no need to do that though because this was great! I did half beef and half sausage just for personal preference. I will be making this again and again!

I didn't get to eat this as I made them both as a gift for a new Mama of 3! It looks fantastic though and I heard it was great :) http://heatskitchen.blogspot.com/2014/01/pizza-pasta-casserole.html

The kids love it as well as the adults. I love that it makes two casseroles so you can freeze one for a later date!

MY REVIEW

My family liked this casserole, and it reheated from frozen very well also. In future batches I may add more veggies, more pepperoni or some sausage... it seemed it could do with just a little something more. It's one that I'll make again, though. Also, I agree with previous reviews that it doesn't need quite so long in the oven, 20-25 min. would be sufficient.

This was very good! The only thing I would change is to put the pepperoni in the casserole instead of on top. Think it would give it more of a pepperoni taste. Overall - great dish!
