Expert Tips

  • Just for fun, make six smiley faces on the top with sliced pimiento-stuffed olives for the eyes and thin strips of green bell pepper for the smiles.
  • Dress up this casserole when you replace the wagon wheels with an equal amount of rotini, rotelle, penne or farfalle pasta.
  • Hamburger pizza more your style? Use lean ground beef instead of Italian sausage.
