  • Turkey meatloaf, just use the McCormick Meatloaf seasoning pkg, mashed potatoes and Green Giant Steamers veggies. I made this last night, it took almost no time at all.

  • Yummy Spaghetti Pie!

    Set oven at 350

    Cook a box of Spaghetti to al denti, and then pour into a colander, don't rinse, and toss with a tablespoon of olive oil.
    In a medium bowl, mix a pkg of ricotta, 1/2 cup mixed shredded italian cheeses, and 1 egg, a couple couple cloves crushed garlic, and a good tsp. Italian seasoning.

    In a separate big bowl, whisk 2 eggs together and then toss with the spaghetti.
    In a greased pie plate, press the spaghetti into the bottom and up the sides to form the crust, then add the ricotta cheese filling. (Like a pie filling, into the middle of the "pie") Pour 1 jar of your fave tomato sauce over it and top with enough mozzarella cheese to mostly cover sauce.
    Cover with foil and bake for 50 minutes. Uncover and cook an additional 10 minutes so the cheese gets brown and bubbly. Let stand ten minutes before slicing

    This is great served with salad or roasted green veggies and garlic bread!
