Pizza Casserole - One Dish Meal

If you have been around here long you know that I LOVE recipes that are considered One Dish Meals.  Why?  Because they are easy to prepare, clean-up, contains all the food groups and perfect for busy families like us.  This one is no different.  Like most kids, Jude and Teagan might say pizza is their favorite meal.  Well, I cannot feed the pizza every night so I decided to improvise a little and it was a success!!
