Pizza Casserole

December is all about quick and easy meals, and this one is both.  It comes together very quickly and then just bakes for a few minutes to heat through and get bubbly and gooey and yummy.  It's a great way to use leftover roast and it's very kid friendly!

Pizza Casserole
1 ½ cups (or thereabouts) cubed leftover roast beef OR ½ lb ground beef
2 cups macaroni or any kind of individual pasta, cooked (cooked al dente) and drained
 1 32 oz. jar spaghetti sauce
1 8 oz. pkg. shredded mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese, grated
 Pepperoni, diced
Black olives, chopped

 Brown the ground beef (if you’re using that) or cut up the leftover roast. Combine with cooked pasta and spaghetti sauce in a casserole dish- 9x9 or a round one.)  Top with cheeses, pepperoni, and olives. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or until heated through and cheese is bubbly and brown. Add a green salad and you have dinner!
