Easy Pizza Pasta Casserole by Jackie

From Once A Month Cooking
1 lbs ground beef
½ large onion, chopped
½ clove garlic, minced
½ tsp. crushed Italian seasoning
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 (26 oz.) jar spaghetti sauce
8 ounces rigatoni pasta, cooked and drained
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
4 ounces sliced pepperoni

Brown ground beef, onion, garlic and seasoning in oil. Drain. Stir in pasta, spaghetti sauce and 1 1/2 c. cheese. Place mixture in greased 9x13x2 inch baking pan. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella. Top with pepperoni. Cover and freeze up to 3 months.

To cook now: Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until heated through.

Serving Day: Thaw in refrigerator overnight and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes, until hot.

After making this meal, I kind of wish I would have mixed more pepperoni in throughout the casserole to add flavor throughout. Just a thought you may want to try.


  1. My kids loved this Casserole. Can't go wrong with pizza flavor. Thanks for the good meal.

  2. We liked this meal. When I warmed it up, I did add more pepperoni and it was delicious!!! Thanks!

  3. We just had this. I did add the extra pepperoni and next time I think I would add a little more cheese, but it was very good! I liked how easy it was to prep and to cook also.
