The Best Meat Lovers Pizza Casserole

A simple weeknight meal that's ready in 30 minutes. Italian Sausage and pepperoni is mixed together with rigatoni and pasta sauce then topped with cheese.

You’ll Need:

  • 2, 24 ounce jars Prego Traditional Pasta Sauce
  • 1, 16 ounce box rigatoni pasta
  • 1, 12 ounce bag shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 bag pepperoni
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Drizzle olive oil in a large saute pan and place over medium heat. Add sausage and cook until browned. Next add minced garlic and saute for an additional minute; set aside until pasta is done.
  3. While sausage is browning, bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the pasta for seven minutes – the pasta should be well under-cooked. Drain pasta and put back into the large pot.
  4. Count out 18 pepperoni and place to the side. Take the leftover pepperoni and cut it into chunks.
  5. To the pot of drained pasta add the browned sausage and garlic, two jars of Prego Traditional Pasta Sauce, sliced pepperoni, and a handful of mozzarella cheese and stir.
  6. Put pasta into a 9×13 dish, top with remaining mozzarella cheese and pepperoni slices. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and pepperoni is crispy.


Please note you can use as much or as little cheese and pepperoni as you would like. There is no right or wrong amount – it’s totally up to YOUR taste preference. Enjoy!
