pizza casserole: my favorite comfort recipe2 years

I was pretty young when we got our first microwave, mounted over the stove. My mom bought a microwave cookbook and started serving us this recipe and it's still probably my favorite comfort food.

1 lb. ground beef
3 habanero peppers, minced (if you like it hot)
4 oz. shredded pepper jack cheese
8 oz. canned sliced mushrooms
8 oz. black olives, halved
7 oz. pepperoni, halved
1 large bell pepper, red or green
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can tomato paste
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
2 cups water
2 cups wide curly noodles
1 can diced tomatoes

Crumble ground beef and onion into 2-qt casserole dish.

Microwave until meat is set, around 8 minutes, stirring twice. Drain fat.

Stir in other ingredients, cover, and microwave for 18 minutes, stirring twice.

Mix in cheese and microwave uncovered for another 3 minutes.
