My family really liked this recipe. I forgot to buy ground beef so I used 2 pounds of mild italian sausage instead. That was a huge hit! Mushrooms will never find their hideous way into my life (just mentioning them makes me ill!) so of course they were omitted. I happened to be making another recipe at the same time and as I was adding minced onion and minced garlic to it, I added some to this recipe (Manicotti Italian Casserole) as well. I really think it added some much needed flavor to what could potentially be a bland casserole. As other reviewers suggested, I layered the baking dish with the pasta mixture on the bottom, then a layer of mozzarella, pasta mixture, pepperoni, and then a generous helping of mozzarella on the top. Came out of the oven looking awesome and I'm certain the other 4 members of my family I delivered food to, will love it as well...I hope ;)
