OK, I'm going to be one of those annoying people that says it was great and then tells you the million changes I made, lol It is a great base recipe though and you can build upon it. All my changes are based on a 13x9 casserole dish for amount. I have a big family and like leftovers. Anyway, we used 12oz egg noodles instead of elbow. We also doubled the amount of cheese. I sauteed onions, mushroom and the yellow pepper in some butter, salt and pepper. I cut back the amount of sausage and only did 5 sausages (cut up) in the casserole. It seemed like to much sausage to double it. With the extra veggies and cheese it came out great.
This was ok. I added onion, mushrooms, minced garlic and italian seasonings. I also used egg noodles in place of macaroni (I was out of macaroni). My kids liked it, my husband was so-so about it. I don't know if I would make this again or not. It was good but nothing to rave about.
I tweaked this a bit to make it a little healthier, a little more flavorful and stretch it a little farther. I decided to make this a "supreme" pizza bake, so after I sauteed the italian sausage (and I used a full roll of mild italian sausage), I threw in sliced fresh mushrooms, chopped sweet onion, fresh minced garlic, sliced olives, drained petite diced tomatoes and I upped the amount of sliced bell peppers. I made my own pizza sauce out of canned organic tomato sauce and my own blend of pizza seasonings along with a good slug of red wine and a good amount of fresh grated parmesan. The pepperoni I used were the new Hormel Mini Pepperoni, which thrilled my two boys (though, to be honest, for some reason this particular pepperoni was quite salty, so I will not be using it again). We also doubled the cheese on top as this did turn into a double recipe, with the added veggies. Out of a large 9x13 pan, only a small amount remains. My husband ate two large portions all on his own. I'll make this again, with my additions.
Super easy to make and the kids loved it. Thanks for sharing.
My husband and I loved this. I also doubled the recipe and used a 13x9 dish. On half I did the recipe without the peppers and on the other half did a pepper mix sauteed and added sauteed onion, mushrooms, and garlic. My kids liked there half and we loved our half. My husband thought olives would be nice also so we will try that next time. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
It came out pretty well...add tons of cheese to make it extra thick and juicy. We also added mushrooms! Yum!
I doubled the cheese in this recipe and it turned out great. My friends LOVED it!
The Best food in the whole wide world. My Husband and I just love this recipie Thanks you!
