Fall Solutions #8…Pizza Casserole

This was another winner…and it feeds LOTS!!  we had company (8 adults) so I doubled the recipe and we had a whole meal leftover…would of had enough with just one.  I used hamburger instead of ground turkey.  I baked it covered at 350′ for 45 minutes (uncovered last 15 minutes) instead of crockpot…so I did not add the water and I precooked my noodles…

Pizza Caserole

1 lb. ground turkey sausage
¼ cup Pizzeria Seasoning (order at http://www.SimplyKimberS.com)
28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
14.5 oz. can petite diced tomatoes
Half of a 3.5 oz. pkg. pepperoni slices
3½ cups water
16 oz. pkg. spiral pasta, rinsed and uncooked (I precooked the noodles)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Serve it tonight: Crumble sausage into a greased slow cooker. Add next 5 ingredients. Stir to combine. Cover; cook on low 4-5 hours. Stir in pasta; cover and cook an additional 30 minutes. Stir, top with cheese and cover. Cook an additional 15 minutes or until pasta is tender and cheese is melted. Salt and pepper to taste.

Freezer it for later: Combine first 5 ingredients in a gallon resealable freezer bag. Put pasta in a gallon resealable freezer bag. Put cheese in a quart resealable freezer bag. Put all bags in a gallon resealable freezer bag. Seal well, label and freeze. Thaw completely. Combine casserole mixture with water and prepare as directed above.

Serve with a garden salad.
