This recipe appears on my blog, udandi, but I am re-posting it here and dedicating it to singletons and couples who think cooking for 1-2 is too much hassle.
I invited Lunch It Punch It fans Ashley and Joe to eat with me so they could see firsthand this recipe is easy, tasty and most importantly something they can make (and freeze if needed).
8×8 square (or I prefer the 11×7 brownie pan)
½ lb ground beef or Italian sausage (casing removed), crumbled
14 oz (1 ¾ cup) spaghetti sauce
1 egg lightly beaten
1 ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375*
Spray a 8-inch square pan (or 7×11 brownie pan) with cooking spray, set aside
Cook spaghetti as directed on package
Brown meat on medium heat; drain
Stir in sauce
Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes stirring occasionally
Drain spaghetti and place in large bowl
Add beaten egg, 1 cup of mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese; toss to coat
Place in prepared baking dish
Top with meat mixture
Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese
Bake 15 minutes or until heated through
Let stand 5 minutes before cutting to serve
At this point, I cut it into six portions, put each portion into Pryex 2-cup rounds with the lids and store in the fridge or freezer. That my singleton and couple friends, is how you make a homemade meal into a pre-packaged lunch that’s worth a punch!
If you are wondering if you can lunch with me?! You bet, you just need to come to the library! 😉 Oh and since we’re librarians we thought it would be fun to add a little pop culture to our posts, like below. Have a great weekend!
