Spaghetti Crust Sausage Pizza Casserole

READY IN: 1hr
Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

Pepperoni or salami works well for this also, just layer the pepperoni or salami *over* the pasta sauce instead of under it, or use ground beef in place of the sausage meat. All spice amounts can be adjusted to taste.

I made this dish because I wanted to clean up "odds and sods" and also it was an easy meal for when we hosted the guys to come over to watch the Stanley Cup. I made this up the day before, so I was kinda worried how the milk/egg mixture would work out. I don't have a 13 x 9 casserole dish, so I used 2 - 8 x 8. Here are my changes: I would cut the spaghetti down to 3/4 lb and I used 3/4 tsp salt and 1 tsp garlic powder. I served this with a salad and a side dish of Carla's recipe # 6442 and one of my casserole dish could have feed 6 - 8 people. I sent the other casserole dish to the office for lunch and hopefully the boys will finish it off. (wasn't sure if this could freeze??) Next time, I would cut the recipe in half. Overall, I got high praise from my DH and DD and that was what counted the most. Kudos, Kitten on an excellent recipe
