Cheap eats: Pizzeria casserole

July 15, 2009

Pretax cost is $1.33 per serving for five servings or $1.11 per serving for six servings. Prices are from Food Lion on Eastern Boulevard in Hagerstown. Prices include the optional mushrooms.

8 ounces uncooked pasta (elbow, rotelle or shells)
26-ounce jar spaghetti sauce, or to taste
2 ounces sliced pepperoni, cut into quarters
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
7-ounce can of sliced mushrooms, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Or use slow cooker instead of oven.

Cook pasta according to directions, drain. Put pasta in a casserole dish or slow cooker. Stir in pepperoni, spaghetti sauce and mushrooms, if desired. Top with cheese.

Bake for 20 minutes in oven, or, if using a slow cooker, cook on low for 2 hours.

Cook's note: This is a nice recipe to play around with. You could really add whatever you like on pizza.

Serves 5 to 6.
