To be fair, I usually make recipes twice before I rate them as I seriously dislike reviewers who change, then rate the recipe vs making it as written first. Good as written so I am rating this 4 stars for ease, time and ingredients usually on hand. But for my family's preference I made the following modifications. Used spiral noodles in place of egg noodles as they capture more sauce. 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 hot italian sausage which gave the casserole more complexity. Used small pre-sliced pepperoni to save time. Most importantly, this is a great casserole for making ahead ~ as with many pasta dishes, the flavor gets better the longer it sits. Overall this is a great base recipe to build on. Thank you Melissa for sharing!

Sorry but I found this recipe very bland. It calls for no salt or seasonings of any sort which I thought odd while making it but I left it alone thinking that perhaps the pepperoni and sauce would add the flavor but not at all. I made it exactly per recipe the first time and was very disappointed after all the good ratings. However, I saw the potential so I made it a second time and sauted veggies separately in olive oil and then added salt, pepper, garlic powder to meat mixture, more sauce and cheese. Included cheddar along with mozzarella and it tasted ALOT better but rating the original recipe.

I love this recipe! My husband loved it and ALL 6 of my kids loved it too! I think it's the first time everyone in the family actually all really liked a casserole I made! It was fun to make too. I didn't change anything about the recipe other than I used pre-sliced pepperoni and cut them into quarters. I will definately be making this recipe again and adding it to my family favorites. Next time, though, I think I will add a layer of mozzarella cheese in the middle and on the top since our family really loves cheese. Thanks so much for a GREAT new recipe!

Your basic recipe is good, but I use Kraft Mac and Cheese, make according to directions. Saute extra-lean ground beef with onion, green bell pepper, garlic. Add two jars Ragu Pizza Quik, and two pkgs sliced Hormel Pepperoni, then bake as directed 350 for about 45 minutes. Yum. Is the most requested recipe by family, and at work. Delicious and easy for kids of all ages. Alison

This was a total HIT at my house! I used penne pasta, chopped up turkey pepperoni, lean ground beef & about 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese. I used an 11 X 7 dish & mixed all the ingredients in the dish instead of the skillet-much easier that way! So easy, so wonderful & will be made over & over again. Thanks so much!

OMG!!!! My daughter (17yo) wanted to make a deepdish pizza so I looked up a recipe off All Recipes. Well, I wouldn't exactly call it 'deepdish pizza' but I would call it fantastic!! The family loved it and it was really hard to save some for my step-son after he gets off work. We added more shredded cheese (we're cheese freaks) and more pepperoni and left off the peppers and onions and had the best pasta/pizza dish ever!!!

I really really liked this recipe. I honestly wasn't expecting much because it looked so simple, but it had a surprisingly complex flavor. I really recommend using the egg noodles, they add a certain something. Also, the pizza sauce is a very critical element, so I would recommend going with a good brand. I used Pastorelli Pizza Sauce and it was very good.

Very easy to make and my husband & kids loved it! Husband said to add mushrooms and more cheese next time. Add whatever pizza toppings you like! Thank you for an easy and delicious recipe!
