Gluten Free Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza Casserole
I'm so excited about my new blog "look"! I hope you all like it as much as I do! :)
I can think of no better way to welcome the new change than with an awesome recipe. This casserole is so quick and easy it's sure to be a hit!
This is another of Marshal's Great Aunt Jean's recipes. Once again, I hope I did it justice.
Here is what you need:
-1 lb sausage
-12 in gluten free wide noodles, cook as directed (side note coming)
-2 14 oz jars gluten free pizza sauce
-2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
-6 oz sliced pepperoni
Prego's Pizza Sauce is clearly labeled gluten free on the back of the jar.
We have used this pepperoni a couple of times so far with making our own pizzas, and we love it!
I have used De Boles pasta in the past and loved it and this time was no exception!
Side note: The recipe calls for you to cook the pasta before putting it in the casserole dish to bake. As you can see from the picture, this pasta was ready to go in the oven, no boiling required. The outer edges of some of the pieces that were on the side of the casserole dish were still a little hard when I took it out of the oven but overall it still tasted great.
Does anyone know if I were to boil the pasta and then use it the dish, would it have still tasted ok? I'm just curious for next time.
And one more thing about the pasta: We bought two boxes of this at Whole Foods and I thought I would need to use both for this recipe but one box filled up the whole dish.
Here's the recipe:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Crumble sausage in medium skillet, cook until brown; remove and drain on towel.
3. In sprayed casserole dish, layer 1/2 noodles, 1/2 sausage, 1/2 sauce, 1/2 cheese, 1/2 pepperoni.
4. Repeat 2nd layer, leaving more pepperoni slices for the top.
Bake 35-40 minutes.
I made this a couple of days ago and Marshal is STILL talking about it! He mentioned to me just a few hours ago about how much he loved it! I think I'm spoiling him a little bit but oh well, that's my job right?! ;)
