Simple Pizza Casserole Recipe

I had to dig way back into my recipe file to find this Simple Pizza Casserole Recipe. This recipe was popular with my kids when they were young. Actually we all really enjoyed it, but for some reason it kind of fell to the wayside. This is a simple recipe and very basic I’m sure if you wanted to add some additional ingredients like, mushrooms, and green peppers or pretty much any type of topping you would like on a pizza. Because there is Italian sausage used in this recipe the flavor will change with the brand of Italian sausage you are using.

The next time you’re in the mood for pizza, but don’t feel like having to deal with the crust, give this Simple Pizza Casserole Recipe a try. Enjoy

Simple Mac and Cheese Recipe

 

If you are looking for something really quick when the kids get home from school, or you just need a quick side dish, give this Simple Mac and Cheese Recipe a try.

This recipe caught my eye because of the use of the microwave. Except for heating and defrosting I don’t use the microwave very often; but when I saw this recipe I thought it was worth giving it a try. You can pretty much have the cheese sauce done just on time to mix it into the macaroni when it comes off the stove. This Simple Mac and Cheese Recipe tastes great and requires no oven time. However this is a small recipe and you may wish to double it depending on the age, and number you are feeding. Enjoy
