Let’s Make a Meal Mondays

When in need of NEW recipes and meal ideas WHO do you ask? I tend to ask my girlfriends – they always seem to have a new recipe that their kids devour every time they make it for them.

Since we are the 24/7 MOM Friends I’d love for you to share with us one of your favorite recipes your kids devour. Email your recipes to trisha@247moms.com

I can’t wait to try out some of your kid-tested recipes, and pass them on to the rest of the 24/7 MOMS.

Another place to get some NEW yummy kid recipes is Rachel Ray’s Yum-O http://www.yum-o.org/ site. Once you are at Yum-O, click recipes and you can search for recipes based on your child’s age and food choices. So, for those oh-so-picky eaters, this is a perfect place to find new meal ideas.

Do you have a great site you find new recipes on? Comment and tell the 24/7 MOMS.

This week’s Let’s Make a Meal recipe comes from my girlfriend Lori Reno.

Super Spaghetti Pie
From the “Easy One Dish Meals”

1 (8 oz) package of spaghetti
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
1 egg, beaten
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1 cup small curd cottage cheese, drained
½ pound lean ground beef
½ pound sausage
½ cup chopped onion
1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp oregano
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Cook spaghetti according to package directions. While spaghetti is still warm, stir in parmesan cheese, egg and butter in a bowl.

Pour into well greased 10-inch pie plate and pat mixture up and around sides to form crust. Pour cottage cheese over spaghetti crust.

In skillet, brown meat, sausage and onion, then drain.

Add tomato sauce, garlic powder, oregano and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Simmer 10 minutes and stir occasionally.

Pour meat mixture over cottage cheese. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Sprinkle mozzarella on top and return to oven just until cheese melts.

Serve in pie slices – YUM!
