Making the Pizza Casserole
First of all I had to preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Next, I boiled the pasta according to the packaging. Then once the pasta was cooked I drained the water.
Second, I browned the Italian Sausage and removed the grease. Then I cut some of the pepperoni in fourths, adding them and the diced veggies to the pot.
I continue cooking the meat and vegetables until the veggies were tender.
Third, I added the penne pasta to the pot with the meat, bell peppers, and the onions.
Next, I added the spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, and the seasoning. Then I stirred in a cup of the cheese.
Fourth, I sprayed some olive oil spray in the bottom of my lodge cast-iron skillet then poured all the ingredients into the skillet evenly. Afterwards, I topped the pasta mixture with cheese, pepperoni, and Italian seasoning.
Lastly, I baked the pizza pasta casserole until hot and bubbly, about 20 minutes.
Doesn’t the pizza pasta casserole look delicious? It makes an excellent dinner option paired with french bread and a side salad or your favorite vegetable.
