Pizza Pasta Bake

I found this recipe in a cookbook 33 years ago, when I was newly married. It's tasty and simple to prepare-just right for a busy couple. It's also easy to double for a family of four.

    I doubled the recipe so I would have leftovers, used spiral pasta instead of macaroni because that is what I had, and used spaghetti sauce instead of tomato sauce, since that's what I had. After it was done baking, I added mozzarella cheese and covered it to melt it. This was very good and easy and I'll be making it again!!
