Instructions

  • Brown Italian sausage and set aside.
  • In a large bowl add cream cheese, seasonings, 3/4 of both shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheese, diced onions and peppers, and black olives.
  • Then add almost all of the Italian sausage and pepperonis. Save just enough to put on top for garnish.
  • Mix well then smooth out in a 9 x 13 casserole dish.
  • Pour marinara on top and make sure its evenly covering the cream cheese mixture.
  • Add remaining cheeses and sausage/pepperoni.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees uncovered for 30 min.

Notes

Use pre shredded cheese if you prefer,  I just usually shred my own bc it melts better.  You could add a little bacon or ham as well although we thought it might be too much.

    Question?

    I spotted a green leaf in the mixture is that possibly baby spinach?
    Thanks in advance.

“Trashed” Wings

"Trashed Wings" originated in St. Louis, MO and I had them for the first time last summer. Made them at home less than a week after that and now they are a semi regular menu item around our house. They are easy to make, here is how you do it! Note: They are called "trashed" wings bc your oil will be trashed after making them due to cooking the already dipped in buffalo sauce.
