Pizza Bake

This one came from (with changes by me) and originally was call crock-pot pizza but I did this one in the oven to avoid cleaning cheese out of the crockpot :)

Pizza Bake

1 pkg (16 oz) wide egg noodles
1 lb. ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion (I didn't use this)
2 jars (26 oz each) spaghetti sauce (recipe called for one jar, definately needs two)
2 t. Italian seasoning
1 pkg sliced pepperoni, halved
3 cups (12 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
3 cups (12 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
sliced black olives to taste
mushrooms (optional, I did not use)

Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onion (optional) over medium heat to done, drain.

Stir together noodles, beef, pepperoni, seasoning, spaghetti sauce, black olives. Pour half of mixture in 13x9 pan, cover with 1/2 cheese; repeat layers. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes until heated thru and cheese is melted.

CROCKPOT: If you want to do this one in the crockpot, cook the noodles and beef. Add spaghetti sauce, seasoning, black olives to beef. Coat the crockpot with cooking spray. Spread a third of the meat mixture on bottom, cover with a third of the noodles and pepperoni, sprinkle a third of the cheese. Repeat layers twice. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until heated through and cheese is melted.

Our Review: This was LOVED by all!! Very tasty, full of flavor.

We served this with salad and grapes.
