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





Ingredients:
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

Method:

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!
