It's National Cheese Lover's Day

I'm cheesin'!  Today is National Cheese Lover's Day.  And being that I'm a cheese lover, it's a day to celebrate!  There's so many varieties to choose from and so many ways to eat it.

Here's one of my favorite cheesy recipes using mozzarella cheese and sharp cheddar cheese that I'd like to share with you:
Pizza Bake Casserole


1 bag of Egg Noodles (cook as indicated on package)
1 jar of Ragu sauce
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese and sharp cheddar cheese (more or less depending on "cheesiness" preference)
1 1/2 lbs. browned hamburger meat
1 package pepperonis


Preheat overn to 350.

In a casserole dish, layer ingredients in this order:
thin layer of Ragu sauce
half the egg noodles
half of the meat
half of the sauce
rest of the noodles
half the cheese
rest of the meat
rest of the sauce
rest of the cheese
cover top with pepperonis

Cook in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Serve while hot.
