Happy Monday!!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend!!  We pretty much stayed around home on Saturday, which was extremely nice!!  We enjoyed worshiping our King together as a family on Sunday.  I hope you did as well.
I have to give a shout out to my husband!!  You can listen to the sermons he preaches at Redeemer Church HERE.  I am so thankful to have a man who loves Jesus!!  He helps to keep me focused on the eternal rather than the temporal.  And having that perspective really is life changing.

I have an interesting recipe to share with you today.  I found it on Pinterest, which is pretty much where everything is found these days.  What a great resource it is!!  It’s definitely made my life a little easier.

We LOVE pepperoni and we LOVE cheese so this recipe for Pepperoni Pizza Casserole looked so GOOD!!

Here’s what you need:1 pkg of ppperoni, 2 cups of mozzarella shredded, 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef, a large jar of pasta sauce (I used my own), and one bag of noodles.  I used gluten free spirals but penne, egg noodles, any kind of pasta would work.  I would also have some garlic, onion and Italian seasoning on hand for more flavor.

Prepare your pasta according to the package directions.  Make sure you salt the water!  Brown the ground beef adding salt, pepper, onion, garlic and Italian seasonings.  You could use fresh or dried

Put a thin layer of sauce in the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish.  You can see I was going for easy clean up on this night.

Then layer half the noodles, half the meat…half the sauce
rest of the noodles
half the Mozzarella
remaining sauce
remaining cheese

Top with pepperoni, cover and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
Remove foil and bake for another 15.
Let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.Oh it looks so yummy!!  It’ll be a crowd favorite.
