I’m always on the move for a good recipe that is quick to make, healthy and above all kid friendly! Most moms know that getting kids to eat can be a challenge. Finding foods that they love can be a large part of that challenge. I’ve recently went through some of my favorite recipes and “kid approved” them. Kid friendly dinners are a must at our house! This recipe for Pizza Casserole is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Looks delicious, eh?! It’s a very simple recipe. Pizza Casserole is a dish that gets served through our menu a couple times a month. I love it for the nights that I am tired or just need a QUICK meal. To get started grab your ingredients:
- 1 Box of Noodles (Your Choice, I like to Use Garden Rottini)
- 1 Jar 14oz Ragu Homestyle Pizza Sauce
- 1 Package 4oz Hormel Pepperoni Minis
- 1 Package 3.5oz Canadian Style Bacon Pizza Style
- 4 cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Boil your noodles until they are soft, or close to soft (I use the Garden Rottini because the kids love that they are colored, which is true, but they actually have veggies in them, so it’s nice to sneak in a veggie serving!). While the noodles are boiling I cut the Canadian bacon in half, but this is optional. You can leave them larger if you’d like. Next, put your noodles, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese in a 9×13 baking dish. Mix it all together. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350* Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or until it’s hot and bubbling (usually around 20-30 minutes). I serve it with garlic breadsticks.
This recipe feeds my family of 4 with enough left that we can have 2-3 bowls the next day. If you want extra (which you will because it’s good and the kids will have no problems eating it as left over the next day), increase the recipe to accommodate.
Please stop back and let me know what your kids and family think! This is really a go to recipe for us. You can make the kid friendly version and then make another pan for adults, adding mushrooms, onions, green peppers and other toppings that you may like on your pizza or in this case, pizza casserole. My husband likes The extras on his and making two pans isn’t usually a big deal for me.
