This pasta pizza casserole combines two classic Italian recipes for a delicious, easy-to-make dinner that is full of flavor. With just a few simple steps and minimal prep time, this dish is sure to become a regular favorite in your house!
Set a pan of water to boil and cook pasta for 10 minutes until al dente (check package directions). Drain the cooked pasta and rinse it under cold water to stop it from cooking further.
To prevent your pasta from being soft and mushy, make sure to not completely cook the pasta first. The pasta will cook again during baking, so make sure that it still has some bite to it.
Once the pasta is nice and al dente, cool it off by pouring the cooked pasta into an ice bath or running it under cold water to stop the cooking process.
