DELICIOUS! I only have a few suggestions: I like my pepperoni a little crispy so the next time I make this I will cook the hamburger and pepperoni together. Drain it then add the rest of ingredients. (My pepperoni was just too soggy.) I also put the cheese on top and then topped with more pepperoni. It just gave it a nice presentation. And lastly, you will definately need more spegetti sauce. I added 3/4 of another jar. My 5 year old loved this recipe. Next time I will make some garlic bread too.

This is good food made easy. Next time I'll added ricotta cheese to the mix.

A good tip to cut down on the greasiness of the pepperoni is to microwave the slices between paper towels for 30 seconds. The slices are still pliable and you wont be adding all that fat into the casserole. As written the recipe is pretty basic, I wanted to punch up the flavor. I cooked the beef, drained the fat and added chunks of red onion, minced garlic, red pepper flakes and oregano. I cooked that just for a minute or two. I used a pound of pasta because I think just 8 ounces is not enough for all of the meat in the recipe. I added sliced black olives also. It turned out good.

I was looking for supper ideas and I found this recipe. It was so good! It was like a lasagna-type casserole. I browned the ground beef with seasoning salt, a dash of chili powder, hot sauce, and Italian seasoning. I added chopped pepperoni to the beef as well as chopped red onion, browned it all together, then added the mixture to the rotini with a jar of pasta sauce mixed with hot sauce. I topped it with mozza and a bit of cheddar, and sprinkled with a bit more Italian seasoning. I took the casserole out when the cheese was browned, and I sprinkled parmesan cheese on top. This recipe is basic and can very easily be tweaked, you don't have to follow the directions to the t if you don't want to. Next time I will add mushrooms and peppers to the casserole.

This was a very good basic dish and my son and husband liked it. I added Italian sausage and fresh mushrooms and it was very good. I also froze a portion of the casserole before baking; I thawed it later and baked, and it was delicious!

My whole family loved this recipe. The sliced pepperoni was sticking together when I mixed it in though. So, I placed in on top before putting on the cheese, and that worked better.

Pretty good recipe. I was in a pinch for dinner, so I decided to try this one out. I used whole grain rotini pasta instead of regular. I used two 15 oz cans tomato sauce instead of the jar of spaghetti sauce (I didn't experience any dryness this way). I also used 2 cups mozerella along with about a cup of cheddar, and this turned out to be perfect. I didn't have any pepperoni, but neither I or my husband really missed them. My husband also doesn't like biting into onions, so I just used onion & garlic powder along with some Italian seasoning. I cooked the ground beef in extra virgin olive oil and we both agreed it was a good choice. The end result was tasty enough and easy to make. Next time I will toy around more with the seasoning. Thanks for the recipe!

This is a very decent dish! My 7YO had 3 helpings, while my 2YO vacuum barely ate. I agreed with other users and used a full 16 oz bag of pasta (shells) and 1-28 oz can of pasta sauce mixed with 1 jar of pizza sauce. I added onion, bell pepper, and more italian seasonings. I used the stated amount of cheese. We definitely enjoyed it--I made two 8x8 for dinner and one to freeze. This recipe still needs something though. I will keep this recipe and play with it each time. Thanks for a great kick-start recipe!
