This Monday I slept in a little too late (because Madelyn slept until almost 10:00 a.m.!) and I thought my day would be so lazy and great! And after I made my poor sweet angel who has a terrible ear infection - so bad that there is horrible drainage pouring out of her left ear- some lunch, I realized that I actually had things to do that I had forgotten. Oops. So, I raced around and got my mother-in-law to pick up Abby and meet me at the Dr where she had an appointment at 3:30, got Madelyn ready and got
through the appointment just fine. I came home at a little after 4 and had Abby do her homework, change her clothes and get ready to meet grandmother so they could go see Callie (Abby's cousin) dance at practice. In the midst of the chaos, I managed to throw together a fantastic dinner, which was SUPER easy, required very few ingredients and was excellent and easy to double if you wanna freeze one or give one to a neighbor! So, I gotta share it with you guys in case I could help make your Monday more bearable.
1 lb ground beef or ground turkey
about 30 oz of spaghetti sauce - give or take
1 tablespoon of sugar
8 oz of egg
1/4 cup butter
1/4 tsp garlic salt or powder
1/4 tsp onion salt or powder
1/4 cup of grated parmesan
at least 6 oz of mozzarella (I used a lil more then that)
1. Preheat oven to 350, brown meat, drain fat and add spaghetti sauce and sugar to meat
2. Cook noodles while meat simmers and when they're ready and drained, toss in parmesan, butter, garlic salt and onion salt.
3. Spray 9x13 pan with non stick spray - then layer half the sauce, all the noodles, rest of sauce and top with mozzarella. COVER with foil and bake about 45 minutes or until bubbly.
I promise, no one will dislike this one - and you could add things like green peppers if you like to the spaghetti sauce for an extra kick.
