I am all about the easy dinner ideas and this pasta pizza bake is just what the busy mom or dad ordered! It is good, filling, and ever so simple to throw together. The prep for this pizza bake is so easy and takes just a few minutes. Plop this baby into the oven and wait for it to bake up to a bubbling masterpiece of cheesy, saucy goodness. I like to call this the “poor man’s pizza” lol! It costs about $10 to make and you don’t even need to leave your house to go to the local pizzeria.
I think it’s safe to say that we all look forward to pizza night every other Friday. Some nights, it means placing an order on the computer and having it delivered about 45 minutes later. Other nights, it means Mom thawing out the pizza dough the night before and getting busy with a variety of toppings. It could be your traditional pepperoni, or even as funky as Mac & Cheese pizza. We love pizza. Period. But then, naturally, you’ve got those ‘oops’ moments. You know the ‘pizza night’s come up again, and even though you told yourself multiple times, posted sticky notes, and tied a ribbon around your finger, you still forgot to thaw the dough out’ moments. And it’s 30 minutes until you told everyone to be at the table. See, an ‘oops’ moment. Luckily for me, one of my guys favorite pizza flavor combos will forever be meatlover’s.
