After reading the previous reviews I decided to add the following ingredients: small can sliced black olives, approx. 8 oz. diced pepperoni's, 15 oz. can pepperoni flavored pizza sauce, 1.5 tablespoons diced jalapeno peppers. Put 1 can crescent rolls on bottom of 13x9 pan sprayed with Pam, thin layer of meat, 1 cup mozerella, thin layer of meat, another cup mozerella, no parmesan. Cover with 2nd can of crescent rolls, bake for 25 min. This came out golden and perfect; we will definitely be making this over again and again.



I make this recipe using 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese instead of the parmesian. I've also used ground turkey instead of the ground beef, or thrown in some crumbled, browned italian sausage with the ground beef. Use a 14 ounce jar of pizza sauce instead of the spaghetti sauce (Ragu quick sauce is great). Mix the brown ground meat with the sauce and one beaten egg (save 1 Tbs of the egg). I place the meat mixture in the dish and layer the cheeses over it. Roll the crescent rolls out to completely cover the ingredients, and brush the Tbs. of egg over the dough to get a golden crust.



Great concept-After reading all the reviews I made a few changes. I cooked a a full box of pasta placed it in the bottom of the pan & mixed it with the sauce. Baked for 20 minutes. Added shredded mozzarella & more sauce. Layered croissants and sprinkled with parmesean cheese. Baked additional 20 minutes... Excellent and filling! Thanks!
