Pepperoni Pasta Bake Recipe


I never seem to get tired of casseroles, they are so easy to prepare and usually always turn out good. This recipe for pepperoni pasta bake is no different; it can be prepared quickly and the end result is amazing. This casserole consists of rotini noodles tossed with pasta sauce and Italian sausage. It is then topped with a layer of mozzarella cheese, cottage cheese, black olives and pepperoni. You can add additional ingredients as well such as ham, Canadian bacon, and cooked mushrooms. Before adding the pepperonis, I added an extra layer of mozzarella cheese on top. If you are looking for a simple casserole dish for dinner, this is perfect for you. Enjoy.Cooking Instructions:
