Turkey Pizza Casserole isn't a turkey on a pizza in a casserole dish.
Turkey pizza casserole has become my son's favorite. He was still in the single digit ages when I made it for the first time. He thought I was going to put a Thanksgiving turkey on a pizza and bake it in a casserole dish. True story! Oh the innocence of childhood. I can't wait to tell his kids about that one.
Now on to the casserole recipe. This dish is hearty! It's chock full o' meat and cheese! I usually serve it with some homemade cheddar garlic biscuits. You know, like the ones served at that famous seafood restaurant? Ah, my mouth is watering just thinking about it.
Other than an onion, this casserole doesn't have any veggies in it.
You may want to serve something healthy on the side. A salad, spinach, broccoli, or something green would be ideal. You do know you're supposed to have green veggies everyday, right? Uh-huh, you sure are! So no skimping on the good, healthy stuff. Besides, you're gonna wanna serve a veggie to counter the carbs in this casserole.
You can also use any kind of pasta...except spaghetti like noodles. Spaghetti and noodles like it can't soak up the sauce like an elbow, rigatoni, or spiral pasta.
