Kid’s Favorite Pizza Casserole

This Kid’s Favorite Pizza Casserole is the perfect choice if you’re looking for kid-friendly casseroles. I guess you could say it’s a pizza – mac’n’cheese – bolognese hybrid! All of the best bits of these three classics together in one dish. Start by cooking the elbow macaroni, then brown off the beef and add the pizza and tomato sauces to it.

The casserole is assembled in four layers, alternating between the meat and macaroni mixture and mozzarella, so the cheese melts and oozes between the layers. It’s the perfect weeknight dish, filling, satisfying and delicious and is always super popular with my kids!

To make Kid’s Favorite Pizza Casserole, you will need the following ingredients:
