Directions

  1. Mix up the first 7 ingredients to create the cheese filling and set aside in fridge until ready to use.
  2. Brown the sausage and ground meat, adding a teaspoon of garlic salt while browning the meat.
  3. Drain all the fat.
  4. Place the meat mixture back in a saucepan and slowly add the jar of Classico Four Cheese sauce.
  5. Add all the other ingredients for the meat filling and simmer on the stove, partially covered, for about 1/2 hour, stirring occasionally.
  6. Place the noodles into boiling garlic-salted water and cook until soft when poked with a fork.
  7. When the noodles are done, drain the noodles and rinse off with cold water so they can be handled easily.
  8. Spray the baking pan with a non-stick spray and put a layer of noodles down on the bottom of the pan. It is OK to cut some of the noodles to fit into the pan if they do not fit whole.
  9. Spread half the cheese filling over the noodles, then half of the grated mozzarella cheese on top of that, then half of the meat sauce over the mozzarella cheese. Ensure the meat sauce covers the cheese entirely.
  10. Next add a layer of Pepperoni across the whole layer of meat sauce.
  11. REPEAT layers one more time (noodles, cheese filling, mozzarella, meat sauce, then pepperoni).
  12. Top the final layer of pepperoni with the rest of the grated mozzarella cheese.
  13. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting into it.
