Ingredients
  

  • 2 lbs. lean ground beef (93 to 96%)
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 7 oz. thin spaghetti broken into thirds
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup half-and-half or whole milk
  • 28 oz. jar meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 35 slices pepperoni
  • 4 oz. can mushooms drained
  • 2.25 oz. can ripe olives sliced and drained
  • 8 oz. pkg. mozzarella cheese shredded

Instructions
 

  • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the beef, onion and garlic until meat is no longer pink.
  • Drain grease.
  • Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Cook spaghetti according to package directions.
  • Rinse with cold water to stop noodles from cooking.
  • Drain.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine eggs and half-and-half.
  • Stir in cooked and drained spaghetti.
  • Transfer spaghetti mixture to a greased 9x13” glass baking dish.
  • Top with ingredients in this order: spaghetti sauce, beef mixture, pepperoni, mushrooms and then olives.
  • Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over top of casserole.
  • (Dish may be full, especially if you use a narrow pyrex dish instead of a deeper casserole dish).
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350º for about 40-45 minutes, or until casserole is hot and bubbly.

Notes

NOTE: The recipe called for ¾ cup milk. I substituted half-and-half. I recommend decreasing the amount to about 1/3 cup. You really don’t need any more than that.
NOTE: The ingredients for this recipe are too much for a regular 9x13” Pyrex glass baking dish. You need a deeper dish then what that provides.
