ground beef +onions
leftover chicken burritos
extras: cheddar cheese, green onions, sour cream, salsa, flour tortillas
This was ridiculously delish, and I’m surprised because I didn’t think it would be all that! Nice surprise indeed 🙂
(on a side note, I’ve kind of stopped measuring things, so… you can be flexible with the amounts here)
Pan grill the zucchini, brown the sausage, cook the pasta.
Toss the cooked pasta, zucchini, and a drizzle of olive oil together. Top with Parmesan cheese, fresh ground black pepper, and browned sausage.

So I have only eaten meatloaf twice in my life: at Mel’s Diner two months ago, and last night when I made it for the dinner. This recipe is from Brian’s mom, and of course, it’s decorated with Nassy twists. I would have taken a picture, but in case you haven’t noticed, my camera SUCKS and I’ve given up (for now).
You can use any ground meat you like, just make it total up to 2 lbs in the end. Ground turkey, chicken, pork, sausage, beef, veal, venison/rabbit/ostrich/bison/duck/lamb/horse/Cornish hen?—that’s up to you.
Other things I would have like to have added (but not all at once):
Sides: mashed potatoes, steamed carrots, sautéed onion, garlic, yellow squash, zucchini, & parsley, sautéed shredded Brussel sprouts, braised carrots, salad, fennel & beetroot salad, green beans, peas, creamed spinach, asparagus, corn, etc.
This was UH-mazing! I love spaghetti squash and the zucchini really adds to the meat sauce (don’t leave it out!). It was so good I had to give up my last precious bites to Brian– he was foaming at the mouth for more!
* baking spaghetti squash: Cut the squash in half, scoop out the seeds, in a casserole dish place the squash cut side down in an inch of water, bake for 30-45 minutes at 350 degrees. When it’s done, use a spoon to scrape out the flesh.
left-over red rice, asparagus, and habanero & green chili sausage = unplanned yummy-ness
