My husband found this recipe somewhere and emailed it with the request to make it. I went through 100 recipes for pizza casserole on this site to find and save the recipe. This is delicious! My kids loved this so I'm happy to find it here. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to try this again with low carb pasta and see how it goes.
