  • 10 ounces uncooked egg noodles
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 jar (14 ounces) pizza sauce
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 package (3-1/2 ounces) sliced pepperoni


  1. Cook the noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and green pepper over medium heat until beef is no longer pink, breaking the meat into crumbles; drain. Add pizza sauce and mushrooms; heat through.
  2. Drain the noodles. In a greased 13x9-in. baking dish, layer half the noodles, half the beef mixture, 1/2 cup of each cheese and half the pepperoni. Repeat the layers. Cover and bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.
