Easy, kid-pleasing casserole. I subbed Boca ground "burger" (soy) for the ground beef (worked very well here) and used turkey pepperoni to reduce the fat content. Also used leftover marinara, rather than pizza sauce, and added a few more herbs and spices to suit our tastes (fennel seed, garlic, etc.). I used shredded mozzarella and probably added more than 6 ounces. Went over well around here--thanks for posting!
