Italian Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf

Italian Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf: So good & you can put just about anything you want in it! Fresh Mozz makes it so ooey & good

Here’s a recipe that I made awhile back when I was at the folk’s but didn’t post before. Now that it’s December, I thought this Italian Stuffed Meatloaf would be a perfect “something” different for a winter weekend meal!

Skillet Lasagna

Skillet Lasagne - easy meal with all the taste of a real deal lasagne

I think cooks must be divided into two camps when it comes to Lasagna. Those that toss it together with no problem (and yeah, I’m jealous of them) and those that think, “Yeah, it’s great, but it’s a production and the mess!” That’s me. Love Lasagne – hate making it. Raise your hand if you’re with me, here!

Cheesy Tomato & Vidalia Pie

Cheesy Tomato & Vidalia Pie. A bit of work but this is HEAVEN!!

Tomato Pie’s been on my bucket list for a while! I know – strange, right? Well, maybe not if you have a ton of tomatoes, and maybe not if you’re from the South. Or maybe not if you watch Paula Dean. But this isn’t quite that tomato pie. This is a Cheesy Tomato & Vidalia Pie, and you’ll want to serve it for lunch or dinner, maybe with a simple green salad.

Cheesy Pasta Bake

Can a person have too many pasta recipes? Possibly, especially if you’re on a budget. It’s almost too easy to turn to pasta dishes, so when I do make one, I try to make it the best! You’ll love this warm and comforting dish loaded with fresh mozzarella, Italian sausage and for a healthier twist, ground chicken or turkey. Use ground beef if you’d rather, though.
