Upside-Down Pizza Casserole

Well, with VBS last week and the crazy first week of summer camp this week, the Rev hasn't had much home cooked food lately--unless sandwiches and Velveeta Shells and Cheese count (which they don't, in my world).

So even though I was pretty tuckered out from helping to oversee our first big field trip today, I wanted to put something halfway decent on the table for dinner. This is a quick and easy casserole that you can customize to your taste--the basics are below but I added mushrooms and chopped pepperoni to ours--fix it to suit your crowd.

Upside -Down Pizza Casserole

1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (I used ground turkey)
1 15-ounce can Italian-style tomato sauce
1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (6 ounces)
1 10-ounce package refrigerated biscuits (10 biscuits)
Italian Seasoning

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large skillet cook beef until no longer pink, stirring frequently. Drain off fat. Stir in tomato sauce; heat through.

Transfer mixture to a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Sprinkle mixture with cheese.

Flatten each biscuit with your hands; arrange the biscuits on top of the cheese.

Sprinkle with italian seasoning.

Bake in the preheated oven about 15 minutes or until biscuits are golden.
