Angie Gets Organized

This is why I'm trying to get organized...for my family. I am a strong believer in family meal time, but I know that without a little planning, it will be hard to keep us all together. It will also be easier to spend money foolishly on prepared foods or fast food. I love trying out new recipes, so this is my site to pass on recipes, while also organizing them into a meal plan. I hope it helps you to keep your family together. I would love to hear what others are having for dinner, or see a new recipe or two! Feel free to leave me some feedback in the comments least then I would know someone is reading this!

It's not gourmet...just good food!

Spaghetti Casserole

Serves 8-10

8oz pkg spaghetti
2 eggs
1/4 c. cream (or whole milk)
1 tsp. dried basil
1 lb bulk pork sausage
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 14oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1 6oz can tomato paste
1 cup beef broth
1 tsp Italian seasoning
2 c. shredded colby-jack cheese

1. Cook spaghetti in boiling water. Meanwhile, beat eggs, cream, and basil in large bowl. Drain spaghetti and immediately add to egg mixture. Toss spaghetti with egg mixture until coated. Place in 9x13 baking dish and put in refrigerator. (If serving immediately, do not put in fridge. Go directly to step 2.)
2. In skillet, cook pork with onion and garlic until pork is browned. Drain off excess fat. Add remaining ingredients except for cheese and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minto blend flavors. Pour sausage mixture over spaghetti in baking dish. Refrigerate until cold, then wrap, attach bag with colby-jack cheese, label with reheating instructions, and freeze. (If serving immediately, sprinkle with cheese, and bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 min)
3. To thaw and reheat: Thaw casserole overnight in fridge. Preheat oven to 375. Uncover, sprinkle with cheese, and bake 40-50 min, until thoroughly hot and cheese is melted and beginning to brown.
