Pizza Casserole

This recipe comes from:

1 — 2 jars red pasta sauce (just depend­ing on how “saucy” you like it)
1 box penne pasta (cooked & drained)
2 — 3 Cups moz­zarella cheese
1/2 C shred­ded Parme­san cheese
Pizza Top­pings of your choice (we used pep­per­o­nis & black olives–about 30 pep­per­o­nis and 1 can of olives)
1. Spread a thin layer of sauce along the bot­tom of a pan (might be ben­e­fi­cial to spray with cook­ing spray first)
2. Place 1/2 the pasta noo­dles on top of the sauce.
3. Arrange half of your pizza top­pings on top of the noo­dles (for us, that was olives & pepperonis).
4. Top that layer with moz­zarella. I used a lit­tle less than half so that the top would be a lit­tle more cheesy!
5. Con­tinue lay­er­ing with the other half of the ingre­di­ents. Top the whole thing with the remain­ing moz­zarella & sprin­kle with shred­ded Parme­san cheese.

6. Bake at 350 for 30–45 min­utes (until the cheese is bub­bly & the top layer starts brown­ing just a bit). You can cover with foil for the first part & then uncover. Though the last time I made this, I skipped the foil and it came out just fine.

I used sausage and mushroom as my toppings for this pizza!  It was really good, I decided though next time I will try to use pizza sauce instead of pasta sauce or 1/2 and 1/2 to make it taste a little more pizza like!! Other wise this was super easy and gets a thumbs up from everyone in our house!!
