Great recipe! The only thing I changed is to add Italian sausage instead of burger. Yum!!

Amazing! Also, is a great make ahead and freezer friendly meal. The only changes I made were leaving out the mushrooms (Just because I’m not a fan), and using Bow ties instead of egg noodles because I had them on hand. I love pepperoni anything and this dish lived up to the high expectations that I had.

Pretty good. I halved this, and made it in a 8x8 dish. I baked it for about 16 mins, and I think it still needed to bake longer. Good recipe to play around with the ingredients.

Great recipe! I added some garlic and Italian seasoning for more flavor. This is a very versatile recipe that can be suited to your family's tastes. My picky kids loved it so I will definitely keep this in the rotation.

I've tried a lot of baked pasta recipes, and so far this is my favorite. I think it's because it's easy to spice differently to match the cook's and family's taste, and it is really good as leftovers as well. I also like that it's incredibly cheap to make. I only had to buy the pepperoni and the onion and pepper, so it cost me less than 5 bucks. I like to make it on Sunday evening so I can stick it in my Rubbermaid containers and bring it to work all week. Also, my picky 4-year-old munchkin will eat it, so that's another plus.

Enjoyed the meal however spices were lacking. I prefer garlic pepper and italian seasoning. Spice to taste made this the perfect evening meal. Garlic bread too!
