Amish Homemade Pizza Casserole

Amish Pizza Casserole
Over the past couple of decades pizza has become increasingly popular among the Amish.  And if one is tired of pizza, the Amish are keen on its many variations: pizza casserole, pizza bread, English muffin pizza, and even pizza cookies (okay, that’s actually a sweet that just looks like a pizza).

Pizza casserole is basically pizza without the crust, and with noodles.  This is a photo as it goes into the oven (nope, this is not the Amish Cook’s house, she wouldn’t have electric range) before the cheese is melted:

Pizza Casserole
Makes 6 to 8 servings
8 ounces noodles, cooked
1 pound hamburger
1 cup diced onion
1 cup fresh sour cream
1 cup pizza sauce
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup diced or shredded Colby cheese
Cook noodles until tender. Drain and place into 9-inch-by-13-inch baking
dish. Brown the hamburger in a skillet over medium heat.  Remove from heat and drain.
In order, layer hamburger, onion, sour cream, pizza sauce, cottage cheese
and Colby cheese on top of noodles. Do NOT stir.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until cheese on top is bubbly.
