Pizza Casserole...

Last Saturday was spent doing two of my favorite things, cooking and spending time with friends.  When Gooseberry Patch offered to sponsor the Real Farmwives for a freezer cooking day, I jumped at the chance.  Harvest is just around the corner and it's always nice to have a few meals already prepared and in the freezer.  I'm normally not this prepared, but thanks to a whole day devoted to freezer cooking with 10 of my favorite people, I now have 10 meals in my freezer!

We all picked a recipe from this book...

Our freezer cooking frenzy was held at a local church because I don't know if any one's kitchen would have been big enough to accommodate that many cooks!  How many cooks can you get in one kitchen?... 
Liz from Two Maids a Milking and Jent from My Front Porch...

The recipe that I chose was Pizza Casserole because my family loves pizza.  Sometimes I think I could eat pizza every day.  

Begin by chopping an onion...
Then brown the hamburger and onion... 
Set the hamburger and onions aside and boil the noodles until tender and drain.  Place them in a large bowl... 
Next add the hamburger mixture and spaghetti sauce to the noodles and spread the mixture in two 9x13 pans... 
Top with shredded mozzarella cheese and pepperoni... 

Since this recipe makes two, you can bake one right away and freeze the other, or you can give the other one to a friend;).

All the tasty meals ready to be divided...

Of course you can't cook that many meals without having to do dishes which ,we all know, was Jent's favorite part of the whole day!  Lunch Lady Jent....

Be sure to check out the Real Farmwives site for more freezer friendly meals.  You can also check out all the action from our super fun weekend by searching "FarmGirlsFreeze" on Instagram and Twitter.

Gooseberry Patch provided me with a copy of Freezer-Friendly Meals to review, but all opinions and photographs are my own.


  1. And of course, you could use ground turkey and turkey pepperoni. :) We were just talking about the turkey version of this recipe today!

  2. What a fun and productive day!!!!

  3. How would this recipe do with tortillas instead of pasta?

    1. Evelyn, I don't really know how that recipe would do with tortillas because I haven't made it with them, but it does sound yummy and it would be worth a try! It would create a nice twist, I'm sure! Thanks for stopping by!
