  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the pasta according to package directions.
  3. While pasta is cooking, cook the sausage in a skillet over medium heat until just lightly pink. Add green bell pepper and onion to the sausage. Continue cooking until the meat is cooked through. Add the pepperoni, olives, cream cheese, and sauce. Cook over low heat until heated through and cheese has melted.
  4. When pasta is done, drain and return to the pot. Stir the sausage mixture into the pasta; stir to coat the pasta.
  5. Add half of the pasta mixture to prepared baking dish. Top with half of the mozzarella cheese. Spread the remaining pasta over the cheese and top with the remaining mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with the Italian seasoning and place a few pepperoni slices on top, if you like.
  6. Bake until the cheese has melted and the pasta is heated through, about 15 minutes.

Very yummy comfort food. Great for family dinner and potlucks. A twist on pizza, lasagna, and spaghetti. One recipe will feed a large family or big appetites. Easy and quick to make and uses ing...

I loved it even though the only veggie I had was black olives. Can't wait to make it again with all my favorite pizza veggies. Satisfied my pizza craving with no pizza place or frozen pizza in...

This is like my version of pizza casserole, without the cream cheese or sour cream, which I have made numerous times over the past 20 years. It's a keeper, and works very well for a crowd at a p...

I'm not necessarily a pepperoni pizza fan since I prefer hamburger, but I did make this and thought it was "right on" for flavor. It's obviously not a pizza but the taste of one was clear. I add...

I actually made this before I found this recipe but I did a few things different. On the bottom of the pan, I added a layer of shredded Parmesan. I used sweet Italian sausage and a Hillshire F...

Yes, Plan to make this again! Substituted 1/4# ground beef (browned) for the sausage. I really liked the way the cream cheese smoothed out the flavor. This recipe is a winner- and easy too!

Use any other prepared sauce than Ragu. Ew! I used ricotta instead of cream cheese and added it just before putting the sauce in the past. Also added garlic and a shot of Worcestershire to th...

I loved it, but our 5 year old said it was spicy. She liked it, though and ate it twice. I went a little light on the amount of pasta and it still made enough for 8.
