Kids love this casserole because it has pasta shaped like wagon wheels and tastes just like pizza!
Yield: 6 servings
Just for fun, make six smiley faces on the top with sliced pimiento-stuffed olives for the eyes and thin strips of green bell pepper for the smiles.
Dress up this casserole when you replace the wagon wheels with an equal amount of rotini, rotelle, penne or farfalle pasta.
Hamburger pizza more your style? Use lean ground beef instead of Italian sausage.
