Since originally posting this recipe on the blog back in 2012, it’s been changed up a few times. Not here on the blog, but, in my kitchen. The original recipe was good, but, it required boiling the noodles beforehand and I’ve been always been looking for a recipe to avoid that.

Well, today is a good day! It’s a new recipe and new pictures, but, the dish is even easier and still quite delicious.

Crock Pot Pizza Casserole ➙ ➙ Ooey,gooey, easy, cheesy and YUMMY.

Ingredients Needed:

  • Dry Penne pasta
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Alfredo sauce
  • Pizza sauce
  • Pepperoni
  • Italian sausage
  • Water

Pasta: You will be adding dry pasta into the pot. No need to boil it beforehand! If you don’t have any penne on hand, feel free to replace it with a similar size pasta.

Italian Sausage: This you will have to cook before adding it to the pot. Regular, hot or even a turkey Italian sausage will work. If desired, cooked crumbled ground beef or turkey can also be used.

Want to Make it Meatless? Simply omit the pepperoni and sausage. It’s still delicious!

Side Note: This dish is for your crock pot/slow cooker, not the instant pot. I simply used the slow cooker function on my instant pot. Hence, the pot in the pictures. 😉

I would use Italian sausage in place of turkey or ground beef:)

This looks great! One question - are the noodles cooked before layering in the crockpot or do you put them in uncooked? Thanks!
