Supreme Pizza Casserole

I love this fabulous Supreme Pizza Casserole! This Italian recipe combines fettuccine, spaghetti sauce, pepperoni, and lots of cheese — both Mozzarella and Parmesan. It’s fairly simple to put this main dish together and is a recipe that is kid-friendly, and one you can easily divide and put half in another dish for the freezer.

This recipe is very similar to my Cavatini and my sister’s Pizza Hot Dish (not posted yet). This very tasty Italian main dish casserole is from Taste of Home’s casseroles cookbook, fall 2008, pg. 3. I love picking up Taste of Home booklets and paperback cookbooks to keep around the house in magazine racks. Then when I have time I can peruse them for another great find. Well this is one of them.

When I first posted this recipe in June 2012, I was just getting my blog off the ground. When I remade this recipe and took pictures in February 2013 the pictures were were taken with an inferior camera and late at night so they turned out dark, grainy, and without much definition. I recently remade this recipe for a party we had at our house for Labor Day weekend (September 2014), so I retook the pictures. I think you will be better able to see how delicious this amazing pasta dish really is.

This Italian main dish is one you will surely want to add to your collection. Your family, especially kids, will love this casserole that’s have way between pizza and pasta! It’s great for potlucks, family get-togethers and even as an alternative during the holiday season to turkey or ham!

    Help…I’m in the middle of making this and do not see where the pizza sauce is addressed except in the ingredients list. Where do I put it?

      Hi, Mary. I’m sorry, the pizza sauce is added at the same time as the spaghetti sauce. I’ve corrected the post. Thanks for catching this.

    This sounds incredibly delicious, but I’m very concerned about the sodium content of this dish! By using spaghetti sauce & the pizza sauce (from jars), Mozzarella & Parmesan cheese, and also Pepperoni…. these additions are all extremely high in sodium! What is the Nutritional Value of this dish (per serving)…. since some folks don’t know how to figure it out, but need to follow a lower sodium diet. Please advise.

      Hi, Angelina. The only thing I can recommend if you wanted to try this recipe is to find a low-sodium spaghetti sauce or make your own sauce from scratch. Nutritional value can be determined by finding an online website that calculates ingredients. Thanks for stopping by.
