Weekly Menu Plan

I have not been making my monthly menu plans the past few months because we have been on a very tight budget with being in house buying limbo…  I have been trying to use up anything and everything we have in the freezer, pantry and anywhere else I can find it.  I have been making weekly menu plans, based on what we have on hand and adding to it what we need.  I will be doing my meals like this until the house closes.  Thought I would start posting our weekly menu plans again…
Week of 11/5 –11/11

Sunday – Meatball Soup & French Bread
Monday – Million Dollar Spaghetti
Tuesday – Tater Tot Casserole
Wednesday – Chicken Pot Pie
Thursday - Pizza Casserole
Friday – Taco Soup & Corn Bread Muffins
Saturday – Left overs
  
 PIZZA CASSEROLE

I found this recipe on pinterest the recipe is from: http://formamas.blogspot.com/2011/08/pizza-casserole.html

Ingredients:
1 bag of Egg Noodles
1 extra large can of Ragu sauce {or any tomato sauce you prefer}
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese {or more depending on how much you ♥ cheese!}
1 1/2 lbs hamburger meat
1 package pepperonis

I am making mine with Rotini Noodles and a combination of ground sausage and hamburger mix. 

Directions:
Put a thin layer of sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.
Layer as follows:
Noodles
half of the meat
half of the sauce
rest of the noodles
half the cheese
rest of the meat
rest of the sauce
rest of the cheese
pepperonis

Now cover with foil, and bake for 30 minutes
After 30 minutes, remove the foil & bake for another 15 minutes.
Million Dollar Spaghetti
Another Pinterest Recipe – this one from: http://ashleykaitlin.blogspot.com/2011/01/million-dollar-spaghetti.html

Ingredients
1 lb. of Ground Beef
1 can of Spaghetti Sauce
8 oz of Cream Cheese
1/4 cup of Sour Cream
1/2 lb. of Cottage Cheese
Whole Stick of Butter
8 oz. of Noodles
Bag of Sharp Chedder Cheese

Boil the noodles
While they are boiling go ahead and mix up the cream cheese, sour cream and cottage cheese.
Fry ground beef and drain,  pour your spaghetti sauce over it
Take a few slices of your butter and put them in the bottom of your casserole dish
Layer HALF of the noodles in the bottom of the dish
Pour  cream cheese mixture on top of the noodles.
Add the rest of your noodles and put a few slices of butter on top of those noodles.

Hi Kathey,
I saw your post for the pizza casserole. Sounds yummy! I wanted to try to make one too. Did you need to cook the meat first, or did it just cook in the casserole?
Thanks,
Laura
