Pepperoni Pizza Casserole w/ Ground Beef

Also seen on On Cloud Yum

Ingredients

8 ounces ground beef, 95% lean meat
1 cup onion ( chopped )
14 ounces pizza sauce ( (I made Simple Pizza Sauce and weighed out the 14oz needed)--worth it over store bought )
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
4 ounces rotini pasta ( dry )
2 ounces pepperoni ( sliced )
1 1/4 cups shredded cheese ( Italian cheese blend )
to taste italian seasoning ( sprinkled over top )

Directions

Preheat oven to 350º. Cook ground beef with onion until onions are tender and beef is cooked through over medium-high heat, 8-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions, drain.

Add pizza sauce to meat mixture, add salt and pepper. Fold in the pasta, transfer to a greased 9" round pan. Top with cheese and pepperoni (full 2 oz or just what you would on a pizza). Generously sprinkle with Italian seasoning ( I used basil, oregano, garlic powder, and onion powder).

Cover with plastic wrap and store in fridge until ready to make, uncover before baking

Bake 30 minutes, if desired put under broiler for a few minutes to get the topping nice and golden brown--yum! Allow to cool about 5 minutes before cutting into.
