Made a few changes since I didn't have the parmesan (or pepperoni rec by other reviewers). 1) Used 1/2 cup Kraft Creamy Italian Dressing & Dip mixed with the egg & noodles instead of parmesan 2) Next I layered sausage & 1/2 small can chipotle peppers in adobe sauce, chopped 3) I then layered mozarella cheese 4) I added 1 Tbsp of garlic to the sauce and poured the meat/sauce over all the layers 5) Final layer was mozarella cheese. Baked to perfection (uncovered) after 30 minutes. It was super spicy to me - my lips were numb - I would use less chipotle peppers (or omit) next time, but my husband went crazy over this dish (he loves spicy food). I say give this dish a try and add a few of your own touches to it! Excellent!
