Pizza Casserole


This is similar to many Baked Pasta dishes but with the distinct flavors of pizza. I created this recipe yesterday and took it to a dinner party as the main dish. It was a big hit and every woman there asked for the recipe.

Ingredients:


  • 1 lb bow tie pasta
  • 1 lb Jimmy Dean sausage, 'country mild' (or other flavor if desired)
  • 1 large onion, medium size chopped (cooked with sausage)
  • 2 (26 ounce) jars spaghetti sauce (I used Bertolli's Tomato & Basil)
  • 1/2 lb cubed cooked ham
  • 1/2-1 lb of sliced pepperoni
  • 3 (8 ounce) bags of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 6 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions:

  1. Cook pasta in boiling water until al denté.
  2. Cook sausage, garlic powder and oregano with onions until the juices run clear.
  3. In a lightly greased 9x13x3 inch pan, pour a small amount of sauce to lightly coat bottom.
  4. Layer ingredients in the order listed below.
  5. 1st layer-1/3 of the pasta, 1/3 remaining sauce, 1 bag of mozzarella cheese, 2 Tablespoons parmesan cheese, sausage and onions.
  6. 2nd layer-1/2 of the remaining pasta, 1/2 remaining sauce, 1 bag of mozzarella cheese, 2 Tablespoons parmesan cheese, ham.
  7. 3rd layer-all remaining pasta, all remaining sauce, 1 bag of mozzarella cheese, 2 Tablespoons parmesan cheese,all the pepperoni(completely covering the entire top with pepperoni).
  8. Bake at 375°F for 40 minutes.
  9. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
