Pizza Casserole

My family loved this.  It was basically pizza with noodles rather than dough.  It was tasty, easy, and eaten :)  This is great for a busy week (like, say, for the first week of school!), and for a crowd.  Throw together a salad or some roasted broccoli or asparagus, and you've got a full meal.  

Recipe from my friend, Lindsay Russell

1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup butter
2 cups uncooked rotini pasta (it didn't specify how much or what kind of pasta, but this is what I did.) 
8 oz can and 15 oz can tomato sauce
4 oz sliced pepperoni (I used turkey pepperoni)
1 cup grated Swiss cheese
1 pound grated or sliced Mozzarella cheese
4 oz can sliced mushrooms
1/2 t oregano
1/2 t basil


Saute and reserve onion.  Melt butter and pour into 9x13 glass pan.  Cook noodles and drain.  Toss cooked noodles in butter until coated.  Cover with 15 oz tomato sauce.  Layer 1/2 pepperoni, 1/2 mozzarella, 1/2 Swiss, all onions and all mushrooms over top.  Sprinkle with oregano and basil.  Layer with remaining 8 oz tomato sauce, pepperoni, and Swiss.  Put remaining mozzarella on top and bake at 350 degrees until bubbly (about 45 minutes.)
Happy Cooking!
