Pizza Casserole

I'm not a huge beef person...especially ground beef...but we went in with some family and bought 1/3 of a cow because my husband loves it. And now we have LOTS of ground beef crammed into our little freezer! So I'm on the hunt for recipes that use ground beef. I was searching on Pinterest for some ideas and put this together:

For an 8x8 dish, you will need:
1/2 bag of egg noodles
1 jar of Ragu traditional spaghetti sauce
8 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
3/4# ground beef
pepperoni slices

Cook noodles and drain. Brown the ground beef and drain off grease.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Layer with the following:

Spread about 1/2 c. of spaghetti sauce into bottom of dish.
Half of the noodles
Half of the ground beef
Half of the cheese
Half of the noodles
Half of the remaining sauce
Remaining ground beef
Remaining sauce
Remaining cheese
Place pepperoni on top (as many as you'd like)

Bake for 30 minutes.

*If you have bigger eaters, you could double this and make it into a 9x13. If your family likes pepperoni, I think it would be good to layer it into the casserole, rather than just on top.

ENJOY!!! :)
