#2759 - Macaroni Pizza Casserole

(by Shirley McNevich)

1lb. ground chuck
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 onion (chopped)
1 - 8oz. box elbow macaroni (cooked and drained according to box directions--do NOT rinse)
1 - 15oz. jar of your favorite pizza sauce
1/4 cup water
6oz. mozzarella cheese (shredded)
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. oregano
8oz. fresh mushrooms (sliced)
pepperoni slices (your choice of amount)

In a Dutch oven over medium heat add ground chuck, salt, pepper and chopped onions--cook/stir until meat is browned. Drain off fat if necessary. Add the pizza sauce, water, garlic salt, basil, oregano and sliced mushrooms to the meat mixture--cook/stir until mixed and hot. Add the drained macaroni--cook/stir until hot. Spread the whole mixture into a greased 9 x 13 glass baking dish. Place pepperoni slices all over the top (as many as you wish). Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, then remove from oven, spread the shredded mozzarella cheese all over the top and return it to the oven. Bake until cheese is melted and bubbling.
