This is a recipe from one of Rachael Ray's 30-minute meal shows on Food Network. It is a cross between two Italian favorites - pizza and lasagna. I made a few changes in the method of cooking. The original recipe calls for it to only be put under a broiler, but I like my pizzagna heated through and through so I bake it first and then put it under the broiler with the cheese for about 10 minutes. Feel free to add your favorite toppings for pizza. It is a really easy meal to put together and tastes great. It is a real family favorite in my house.

This was really tasty, loved the pepperoni but perhaps a bit too much cheese for us...would cut that back a little next time.
Thanks for posting!
