Pizza Tater Tot Casserole

      If you spend just a few minutes looking around my blog, it will not take long to notice that I love casseroles.  Something about them, I just love.  I guess because it is an "all in one dish" meal or that casseroles are usually delicious and filling.  Regardless, I make a lot of casseroles.  For example, I make a Mexican Tater Tot Casserole, a Chicken Taco Casserole, and a Cheesy Ham & Potato Casserole.  Anyway, this is my newest "creation" and by far, it is my family's favorite.  In fact, we made it two nights in a row this week!

Pizza Tater Tot Casserole

1 lb. hamburger meat
1 lb. frozen tater tots
2 c. shredded cheese (we used a cheddar/colby jack blend)
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese
40 pepperonis
2 c. homemade pasta sauce (or 1 jar spaghetti sauce)
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning

      Brown the hamburger meat, garlic powder and onions together.  When it is completely browned, do not drain.

       Stir in the pasta sauce and Italian seasoning.  Turn to low and allow to simmer for 5 minutes to give the flavors some time to "meld" together.

       As the meat sauce is heating up, turn on your oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9"x13" cake pan with cooking spray.  Once the meat sauce has heated, spread the meat sauce into the cake pan.

     Cover the meat sauce with the pepperonis.  Form a nice layer. The photo below is not complete.  We added a LOT of pepperonis...the top of the sauce was absolutely covered but add more or less per your own tastes.

      Now, pour on the tater tots and spread them out over the top.

       Place in the oven and allow it to bake for 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes, remove the pan from the oven and spread some more pepperonis over the top and then top with the shredded cheese and Parmesan.  Bake for 5 more minutes and then serve.
