Pasta Pizza

I tried this tonight for dinner and it was easy and quite good.

5 ounces dried rotini
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
8 ounces ground beef (I used ground turkey and it tasted fine)
1 1/2 cups garden style pasta sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (I mixed half cheddar)

1. Cook rotini according to directions on package. Drain
2. For pasta crust, in a large bowl combine egg, milk, and Parmasan cheese. Stir in drained rotini. Spread rotini mixture evenly in a greased 12 inch pizza pan. Bake at 350* for 20 minutes
3. In the meantime, in a large skillet, cook ground beef until brown. Drain. Stir in pasta sauce. Spoon meat mixture over baked rotini crust. Sprinkle with cheese.
4. Bake in the oven at 350* for 10-12 minutes more or until heated through.

You can also add pepperoni, olives, green peppers, or whatever you like on your pizza to this for a variation. I did one pan of regular and one pan with pepperoni and both were good.
