The first time I had ever heard of or tasted pizza hotdish was when my husband made it for me (yes, he cooks occasionally). Needless to say, I went back for seconds! Since this recipe makes plenty, we always end up with leftovers, which is perfect if you have a large family. And while it isn’t the prettiest dish to photograph, it sure is tasty!
| Ingredients |
✷1 lb Italian sausage
✷1 package of pepperoni slices
✷16 oz box of medium shell noodles
✷24 oz jar of 3 cheese spaghetti sauce
✷1 oz package of dry ranch seasoning mix
✷16 oz container of sour cream
✷2 cups of shredded cheese (pizza blend or Colby jack works well)
| Directions |
Preheat oven to 375°F
Bring a large pot of water to boil, and pour in entire box of noodles. Cook to al dente & drain.
In a heated skillet, thoroughly cook your Italian sausage and finely chop. While your noodles and sausage are cooking, in a 9″x13″ pan combine pasta sauce, ranch mix and approx. 3/4 of the container of sour cream. Stir until blended. Add in cooked noodles, sausage, and as many pepperoni slices as you like. Top with cheese & place into oven. Bake for 30 mins.
If you’ve never had pizza hotdish, I highly suggest you make this ASAP.
You won’t be disappointed!
