Pizza Casserole

2 lbs. ground beef
1 lg. onion, chopped
2 jars (28 oz. each) spaghetti sauce
1 (16 oz.) pkg spiral pasta, cooked and drained
4 c. (16 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
8 oz. sliced pepperoni

In a large skillet, cook beef and onion until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in spaghetti sauce and pasta. Transfer to two greased 13X9 in baking dishes. Sprinkle with cheese. Arrange pepperoni over the top. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until heated through.

Can be frozen (before baking) for up to 3 months.

Follow this link to a tasty recipe for some get-your-morning-started-right muffins.

I recommend doubling the recipe, as the dozen muffins it makes didn't last long enough in my house! (The amount of frosting created by the recipe is enough to ice 24 muffins)
