Pizza bake

Review by Lyndee:
I like to think of this pizza bake as the sweet love child of pizza and lasagna.  It cost less than $10, fed the entire family (we had plenty of leftovers) and it was super tasty.  It takes a little bit of time from start to finish so don’t count on this as a last minute what’s for dinner meal.

1 bag of Egg Noodles
1 extra large can of spaghetti sauce (I started with a normal jar and had to open a 2nd one)
3-4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese { depending on how cheese your family likes}
1 1/2 lbs hamburger meat or Italian sausage
1 package pepperoni

Preheat the over to 350 degrees.  Brown the meat, & drain. In a separate pot, boil noodles until soft. Drain. Once noodles and meat are cooked, spread a thin layer of tomato sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.  Layer with half the noodles, half the meat, half of the sauce, rest of the noodles, half the cheese,  rest of the meat, rest of the sauce, rest of the cheese.  Add a layer of pepperoni.  Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.  Take off foil and bake for 15 minutes more or until the cheese turns a bubbly golden brown.  Let sit 10-15 minutes before serving.

The kids devoured this! It was great! Even after five of us ate dinner, we still had half a pan of leftovers for the next day.  This recipe goes a long way and tastes just as good warmed up later.  Super hit that will be on our menu in the future.
