Spaghetti Meatloaf

This is one of my favorite meals to make 
when I deliver a meal to one of our 
Church members/friends/neighbour in need.
I love that it can be cooked a day ahead and/or frozen for later.
The recipe is simple enough.

1lb of ground beef
1lb of spaghetti
1 jar of pasta sauce
2 cups of mozzarella cheese
4 eggs

Start by seasoning the beef as if you were making meatloaf.
(I use salt and pepper, 
chopped onion and parsley)
Spread the meatloaf at the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
Meanwhile cook the spaghetti, draining them when they are al dente.
Add the 4 eggs and a cup of mozzarella cheese to the cooked pasta and mix well.

Spread the above pasta mixture over the uncooked meatloaf.
Cover the pasta with pasta sauce,

and add the remaining mozzarella cheese at the top.
Cover with foil.
Bake at 400F for about 45min.

When done, eat or let it cool and store in fridge or freeze for later.
This is one of my favorite "meals on wheels".

Stay Frugal,
Daniela
