Pepperoni Pizza Casserole

Great dinner for the whole family. It comes together really quickly and the recipe makes enough that you can freeze half (adding the cheese before cooking). You can also cut the recipe in half if you don't want to freeze it.

1 package (16oz) whole wheat egg noodles
1 lb ground turkey (or beef)
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 can (8oz) diced tomatoes & green chilies
2 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese
2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
4 oz sliced turkey pepperoni (or regular if you prefer)
Optional: 1 can mushrooms pieces

1. Cook noodles according to package directions, drain well.

2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook ground turkey and chopped onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the spaghetti sauce and tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer uncovered for 5 minutes. Stir in noodles.

3. Transfer to a greased 13x9 baking dish. Sprinkle with the cheeses and pepperoni.

4. Bake uncovered at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until heated through and the cheeses are melted. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
