This is a great recipe that is quick and easy, both Hubby and I enjoyed it. I have noted some changes I made. Hope you enjoy it too!! =)

Pizza Casserole

1-Bag of Egg noodles- I used Rotini noodles
1-Large can of Ragu Sauce-I used 2 Jars of Prego Pizza Sauce
3-4 Cups shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1-1/2 lbs ground Beef
1-Package of Pepperonis-I used half a pack 

I added onion to the ground burger and Italian seasoning. I also sprinkled the top with more Italian seasoning.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown the burger (add onion and seasoning if you desire), cook noodles as directed on package. In a 9x13 pan layer the following, spread a thin layer of tomato sauce on the bottom and then layer half the noodles, next half the ground beef and half of the remaining sauce, next the rest of the noodles, half the cheese the rest of the meat, rest of the sauce and the rest of the cheese. Next layer the pepperonis and if you desire sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Cover with foil an bake for 30 mins, then remove foil and bake another 10-15 minutes.

White Chicken Enchiladas

This is a great recipe, that is quick and easy. It's tastey although I feel it's missing something...maybe some garlic or onion..... not completely sure but I will have to play around with it next time. I think maybe the next time when I serve them I would top them with green onions and fresh tomatoes. and  I would personally double the Chicken and Cheese so the taco shells were much fuller  =) ENJOY

White Chicken Enchiladas-Adapted from Joyful Momma's Kitchen
Chicken enchiladas with green chili sour cream sauce
10 soft taco shells
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
3 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. flour
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
1 (4 oz) can diced green chillies
I would personally double the Chicken and Cheese so the taco shells were much fuller and I also only used 1/2 can of green chilies.

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9x13 pan
2. Mix chicken and 1 cup cheese.  Roll up in tortillas and place in pan.
3. In a sauce pan, melt butter, stir in flour and cook 1 minute.  Add broth and whisk until smooth.  Heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly.  
4. Stir in sour cream and chilies.  Do not bring to boil, you don't want curdled sour cream.
5. Pour over enchiladas and top with remaining cheese.
6. Bake 22 min and then under high broil for 3 min to brown the cheese.
