Pizza Casserole

Tonight's experiment was a three color rotini pizza casserole. It turned out pretty good overal. If you put it on the top layer it comes out too tough.

Three Color Rotini Pizza Casserole

2 cups tri color rotini
2 cups spaghetti sauce
salt and Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb seasoning
1lb ground beef
1 4oz can mushroom pieces and stems (no salt added)
1/2 medium red onionl
1tsp garlic salt
1tsp oregano
2 cups three cheese pizza cheese (1 part mozerella, 1 part mild cheddar, 1 part parmegan)
30 or so pepperoini slices.

In a skillet, mix ground beef, onion and mushrooms. Add salt and Mrs. Dash to taste and heat until meat is browned. Meanwhile, cook 2 cups tri colored rotini to package specifications. Drain grease from meat, and mix with rotini in a large bowl. Add spaghetti sauce, garlic salt and oregano. Mix until well blended. Layer 1/2 of the mixture into a 3qt casserole pan or skillet. Spread one cup of cheese over layer and add 15(ish) pepperoni. Add a second layer of meat/noodle mixture. Cover with second cup of cheese and pepperoni. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and dish is heated through.
