Hubby was telling me about this awesome dish his mom used to make when he was a kid: Macaroni Pizza Casserole last month. He continued to talk about it for a few weeks while he asked me if I had ever heard of it (I hadn’t), if I was interested in trying it (I was) and if I would cook it if he got me the recipe (I would not).

After a few weeks of whining and cajoling and getting no where with me agreeing to cook a recipe I had never heard of nor concocted myself, Hubby finally broke down and made the Macaroni Pizza Casserole himself.

It was fabulous! He’s welcome to make this Macaroni Pizza Casserole anytime! Heck, I may even make it myself next time. It does taste like a pizza! It holds up quite well in the fridge, and like so many pasta dishes, actually improved the next day.

That is a cut-away view in the pan. It serves up easily out of the pan using a spatula.

Note: Hubby used gluten free noddles, but regular noodles will work just fine. His mom used regular elbow noodles when he was growing up.
