"For a simple side dish that's sure to appeal to kids, try this twist on traditional pizza," advises Kathy White of Chicopee, Massachusetts. Packaged scalloped potatoes, canned tomatoes and pepperoni slices are combined for fast Italian fare that's delightfully different.

"My husband and I love this recipe. I've been making it for years. Sometimes I'll change it up a little and use 1/2 lb of browned pork sausage, a small can of mushrooms, and some chopped green pepper instead. Pepperoni still remains our favorite though. My recipe is slightly different. It calls for 1/2 tsp oregano and 2 cups of cheese. I put the cheese on at the same time as everything else. The cheese makes a little crust on the top but that's the way we like it. I bake it, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes. This recipe is supposed to feed 4 but we like it so much that sometimes we almost eat the whole thing ourselves. We'll probably be fighting over the leftovers tomorrow :)"
