Pizza Casserole

2 cups uncooked rotini pasta
1/4 pound ground beef
1/4 pound Italian sausage, turkey sausage or pork sausage
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped onion
2/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup sliced pepperoni, cut into bite sized pieces
16 ounces pizza sauce
4 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese*

Cook pasta according to package directions.

Preheat oven to 350F degrees.  Spray 2 quart casserole with cooking spray.

In large skillet over medium-high heat, brown ground beef and sausage with garlic, onion and pepper. Drain excess fat. 

Stir in pasta, pepperoni, mushrooms, pizza sauce, milk, Parmesan and half of the mozzarella cheese.  Mix well and pour mixture into a 2-quart casserole dish.  Top with remaining cheese.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

*I didn't have enough mozzarella so used 1 cup mozzarella and 1 cup Mexican blend cheese and it was great
