Easy Pizza Casserole

This Easy Pizza Casserole was a real lifesaver last week.

Looking for comfort food? Then try this Easy Pizza Casserole - the whole family will love it! #recipes #pasta #casserole

I was just getting over the worst crud I’d had in years, and the Tall Boy and Doodle had been without a home-cooked meal over a week. ¬†The Tall Boy is very self-sufficient and a totally awesome dad, but his dinner prep skills are basically limited to grilling out {it’s too cool here for that now}, spaghetti, tacos and broiled fish.

Combine that with balancing after-school activities on his own, trying to keep the house looking halfway decent and the laundry under control while I hacked up a lung…well, let’s just say that he was happy when I was feeling well enough to finally head back into the kitchen. ūüėČ

Even on the upswing of coming out of my funk, I wanted a recipe that (1) would allow for leftovers; (2) did not require much any effort; (3) would appeal to a 6-year old; and (4) was comfort food!

    Is there a vegetarian substitute you could recommend instead of the beef?

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
