This is a recipe I made up and was really surprised at how great it was.

1lb ground beef
1 lb of ground pork, veal,turkey, chicken and at times I have used jimmy dean sausage
1 pack of lipton onion soup mix
1 package of onion mushroom soup mix
half a stock of celery minced finely
Half a carrot graded or chopped finely
1 small clove of garlic
1 small shallot
2 small to med eggs
1 tablesppon of salt, I use sea salt
1/2 tablespoon of fresh gound black peper
1/4th cup of mustard
2 tablesoons of worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup of plain bread crumbs

Mix well and bake in a 8 inch metal pan until done.
Drain any grease
Once done, spread 2 small cans or one large can of refried beans on top.
The meatloaf will have pulled away from the sides, this will allow you to spread the beans down the side of the loaf to, just like icing a cake.
Add cheese of choice. I use kraft crumbles mix.
place foil over top and stick back in the oven for 5 minutes
The heat on bottom from the hot meatloaf will help heat the refried beans
Once cheese is melted slice and serve
My kids put salsa and sour cream on top, its very yummy and makes meatloaf more fun and everythings in one dish.
Sometimes I will add crushed corn chips on top once the cheese is melted
Sometimes I will add a pack of chili mix or taco mix as well.

Default Cheesy Rice with Paprika Sausage

Yah know, that sounds pretty tasty!!

I do all sort of things with smoked sausage. I cut one up into coins one evening, sauteed them with onions & diced tomatoes, added a bit of minced garlic, s&p then added a bit of sugar & a couple TBSP. of paprika, topped with fresh parmesan & voila!
I decided to served this concoction atop cheesy rice that I threw together.
Now it is a regular in my house!

Default Pasta Bake

One day I had maybe half a box of penne, not enough leftover spaghetti meat sauce to serve spaghetti, some onion, garlic, a small piece of mozzarella and zucchinni.

I sauteed the zucchinni with some red onion (both cut in half moon shapes) and garlic in a little olive oil & red pepper flakes, then mixed the cooked pasta with the meat sauce and topped with the vegetables, then with thin slices of mozzarella and baked in a 13 x 9 at 350 until bubbly. Hubby LOVED it, and he's not much of a vegetable fan. The key was the amounts.. most baked pasta recipes call for much more stuff and make a deeper casserole. This made a nice thin layer which made for a pleasingly "dryer" texture.
