  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain.
  3. Cook and stir ground beef in a skillet over medium heat until meat is crumbly and browned, about 10 minutes; drain excess grease.
  4. Mix cooked ground beef, macaroni, pizza sauce, tomato sauce, and mushrooms in a bowl. Layer half the macaroni mixture into a 9x12-inch baking dish; top with 1/2 the mozzarella cheese. Layer remaining macaroni mixture over the top; sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese over macaroni mixture. Cover dish with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese has melted and casserole is bubbling, about 35 minutes. Let cool for 3 to 5 minutes before serving.

Less expensive and faster than ordering a pizza. I used only one bag of Pizza Blend Cheese (2 cups, shredded.) I also added a teaspoon or two of Pizza Seasoning to the ground beef. If you're loo...

I left out the mushrooms but I added pepperoni

First time I made this as the recipe stated, and everyone loved it. The second time I used our favorite pizza ingredients.I used Italian Turkey Sausage links that I sautéed with chopped green pe...

kept the mushrooms and added pepperoni, onions, and broccoli. My teenage boys absolutely LOVED it. Thank You for the idea. Kathy.

Delicious, easy meal! I took other recommendations and added pepperoni and left out the mushrooms. I also mixed the meat and sauces before I added the macaroni. My husband is the picky one and h...

I made this, with some changes and my kids and hubby loved it! First of all, instead of ground beef, I used ground turkey breast. I always cook my meat with water in it and lots of spices (Garli...
