My grandmother used to fix this yummy dish for my Girl Scout troop when I was growing up. Now, I make it for my stepdaughters’ scout troop. It's easy to prepare, and the girls always beg me to make it —Kimberly Howland, Fremont, Michigan

MY REVIEW

First time making this recipe, this was easy to make and very good. I cut the recipe in 1/2, & baked in a 8x8 glass dish.now that I know how good it is I will make the full amount. it looks great and tastes better. It's like pizza married lasagna.

I almost didn't make it because everyone kept mentioning kids loving it-we don't have kids, so I thought maybe adults didn't like it. Glad I didn't listen because me and my husband really liked it. I didn't put much pepperoni on my side of pan because I don't care for it but I still loved the rest of it. I did only use 1 lb hamburger & 3/4 box pasta (and halved egg/milk mixture) but it was very tasty. I'd definitely make it again

Just made this for a potluck last night - got many compliments and a couple requests for the recipe. I did follow what other reviewers have said so split the recipe into two pans - a 9x13 which I took to the party and an 8x8 which I froze for future use. I also added sautéed fresh mushrooms and red and orange peppers. I think I'd add some garlic to the hamburger mixture next time also. All in all a very good potluck dish.

Great recipe, especially for the kids. This is great to take to a pot luck or for a large family dinner. You may want to make 2 trays and freeze one if you are not feeding a crowd. Also you can add your favorite pizza toppings to the dish, I added peppers and mushrooms to ours.

HUGE hit in my house. i did make my own pizza sauce. i did slice up the pepperoni mixed it in with the burger and also mixed in the pizza sauce as other reviews had advised. it does make a lot, i was maxed out in my largest casserole pan. i plan to freeze the leftovers. next time i will divide into 2 pans. 1 to bake, 1 to freeze and bake later.

thank you for the recipe, it quickly became a family favorite.
