About this recipe: This hearty, meaty pasta bake mixes beef mince, Italian sausage and pepperoni with mushrooms and rigatoni pasta in pasta sauce. A three meat pasta bake that's quite quick and easy to assemble, and truly, deliciously filling.
Made this without the italian sausage and mushrooms because oh and child aont fans but it was still lovely and another way to use up pepperoni leftover from makong pizzas - 06 Apr 2015
I've made this dish twice now. Each time it was completely gone, no leftovers! It feeds about 8-10 people easily. I took someone's advise and mixed 1/2 the cheese into the casserole then sprinkled the rest on top. I layered the pepperoni under the cheese so they wouldn't get crispy. One time I used the slice pepperoni and cut them into quarters. The second time I cubed the pepperoni. Both tasted excellent! - 11 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My family loved this recipe. I did make a few small changes...after browning the ground beef and italian sausage and cooking the pasta, I put them, along with two jars of Bartoli Tomato & Basil spaghetti sauce, the mozzarella cheese and some parmesan cheese together in one large bowl and mixed them, before putting into 9 X 13 pan. I also reserved about 1 1/2 cups of mozzarella to sprinkle over the top, along with some more parmesan. I did not use the pepperoni because I felt there was plenty of meat and flavors already. Very easy and very tasty!!! - 21 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
