How to Make Pepperoni Pizza Casserole
Chop the pepperoni. Sometimes I reserve a dozen or so round slices to put on top of the finished pasta skillet for a little flourish.
Cook the pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside.
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and saute the onion for several minutes until tender. Add the garlic; saute another minute, then stir in the soup, oregano, black pepper, milk, Parmesan cheese and 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese. Bring to a boil.
Stir in the tomatoes, chicken, pasta and chopped pepperoni.
Reduce heat to a simmer, and sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese on top and then the reserved pepperoni slices. Cover and cook until the mixture is heated through.
You won’t soon forget this warm and cheesy pepperoni casserole.
It’s happiness in your tummy.
