Cheesy White Pizza Casserole
White Pizza Casserole is such a delicious dinner that is easy to make and feeds a large family. I can never say no to cheese and pasta and if it would be my way, I would probably survive on pizza and ice cream. Well, I do love greens and healthy meals, but pizza and pasta are my weaknesses.
Now, wouldn’t it be great if the two were combined, by making a White Pizza Casserole from pasta? That is one delicious decision that you will not regret. This easy meal is always a hit, its cheesy, with a crispy pepperoni top, and all the flavors of a tasty pizza in casserole form. Kids will also fall in love with this casserole.
This recipe is so easy and adaptable that you can add your favorite mix-ins just like you would choose them to top a pizza. The combinations are endless, you just have to use your imagination and use the ones you like more. I am a huge fan of adding just pepperoni.
We also like this casserole with spicy jalapeños, sausage, and chicken. You can make it vegetarian by mixing in mushrooms, tomatoes and a handful of fresh spinach. Or transform into a Margherita casserole by adding 1/3 cup pesto and cherry tomatoes, top it with fresh buffalo mozzarella for the ultimate cheesy top!

- If you prefer the casserole spicy add jalapenos, or add some hot sauce into mixture.
