Ingredients

  • 2 (7.25 ounce) packages macaroni and cheese mix

  • ½ cup butter

  • ½ cup milk

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

  • 1 (16 ounce) jar pizza sauce (such as Prego® Traditional Italian Sauce)

  • 1 (4 ounce) package sliced pepperoni, or to taste

  • dried oregano, or to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and return pasta to pot. Add butter, milk, and cheese mix to macaroni; stir until evenly mixed.

  3. Stir eggs into macaroni and cheese until incorporated. Add 1 cup mozzarella cheese; stir until just combined.

  4. Spread macaroni and cheese mixture into the prepared baking dish; top with pasta sauce. Sprinkle the remaining 2 cups mozzarella cheese over sauce. Cover the cheese layer with pepperoni and season with oregano.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Sometimes I omit the pepperoni or use browned hamburger or browned Italian Sausage as the meat topping. These are good alternatives if someone in your household doesn't like pepperoni.
