eMeals: Pizza Spaghetti Casserole recipe - quick weeknight meal!

Another great recipe to share from eMeals.com - the online meal planning service! For just $35 you get weekly meal plans emailed to you as well as showing up in your phone. They come with a numbered grocery list and everything! We're signed up for the Family - Low Fat plan. So these recipes as written serve 4-6 - as usual I cut it back somewhat since there's just 2 of us.

This was for Pizza Spaghetti Casserole...

Start with turkey Italian sausage - I found it in links at Kroger and cut the skin open and pulled the sausage out of the skin.

After the sausage is cooked, you crisp up half a package of turkey pepperoni. I used half a small package.

Cook spaghetti and put that layer in a pan - I used an 8x8 baking dish.

Top with the cooked sausage...

Pour sauce over the pasta - then top with pepperoni - and I added canned mushrooms cuz I love em so much!

Then top with shredded mozzarella and the remaining pepperoni. 

Then you bake for 40 minutes and it's ready! 

It's not the neatest when you scoop it out of the pan - but it really was tasty! It also was nice to mix it up a bit and have something similar but not exactly plain old spaghetti.

eMeals.com is such a great service and at only $35 for 6 months - it's really affordable and flexible! You can start as low as three months if you wanna try it out.
