Pizza Mac

On Saturday, Gwyn and I were discussing what we should do for dinner, when she threw out the option of Mac and Cheese. We then decided that we needed to dress it up a bit to make it a full fledged dinner. And Pizza Mac was born:

Pizza Mac

Prep time: Aprox 10 minutes
Cook time: Aprox 30 minutes

Serves 2-3

1 box of Mac and Cheese (any verity will do)
1 Bell Pepper
4-6 White Mushrooms
1 Package of Pepperoni
1 can pizza sauce
2 Cups Mozzarella Cheese (you can splurge and get the Mozzarella/Provolone mix if you want)

Pre Heat oven to 375

Prepare the Mac and Cheese as it says on the box. Due to the baking process, cook the pasta a little less than you normally would.

While making Mac and Cheese, chop up Pepper and Mushrooms. Saute in oil and whatever spices you want.

In the pot you made the Mac and Cheese in, add the peppers and mushrooms, then some pepperoni. You may want to cut up the pepperoni at this point as it tends to clump if just thrown in in slices. Add a little less than half of the cheese. Stir this until everything is distributed.

In a pam-ed (greased) large casserole dish, pour in Mac and Cheese mixture. Pour some pizza sauce over mixture. We used about a half of the can (so guessing, 6-10 oz). Cover sauce with a layer of pepperoni, and cover with the rest of the cheese.

Bake for 10-20 minutes, until cheese just starts to brown and juice bubbles.
See... Browning and Bubbling.
Soupy, cheesy goodness...
Chelsea, I am aware that this is similar to Nacheeto... but this is better.

Hey! This is a great one for people who are not the most experienced... Chris... Caleb.. I am looking at you. Also this can easily be made vegetarian by leaving out the pepperoni.
