1. Ultimate Meatloaf Casserole

This recipe for Ultimate Meatloaf Casserole combines the best of healthy casserole recipes with easy meatloaf recipes. The whole family will absolutely love this hearty recipe!

Serves: 6

1 1/2 pounds 97% lean ground beef
3/4 cup onion, chopped finely
1/3 cup whole wheat cracker crumbs
2  egg whites, slightly beaten
3 tablespoons skim milk
1 tablespoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups mashed potatoes
1  11-ounce whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup reduced fat Mexican-style cheese blend

Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
In large bowl, combine ground beef, onions, cracker crumbs, egg whites, milk, chili powder and salt. Mix lightly but thoroughly, and gently press into bottom of 9-inch square baking pan.
Bake meatloaf for 20 to 25 minutes or until no longer pink and juices run clear.  Carefully pour off drippings.
Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine all remaining ingredients except the cheese.  Spread over meatloaf to edges of pan; sprinkle top with cheese.
Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat 3 to 5 minutes or until top is lightly browned; cut into 6 rectangular servings.
2. Ultimate Squash Pasta


1  butternut squash, peeled and cubed
4  shallots, diced
18 ounces hard apple cider
3 tablespoons butter substitute
1 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
  Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup reduced fat parmesan cheese, freshly grated
1 pound whole wheat penne pasta
Saute the shallots in oil until soft, and then add the squash.  Cook, stirring, about 5 minutes. Then, add the cider, butter substitute, nutmeg and black pepper.
Bring to a boil and simmer until the squash is very soft, about 20 minutes or less.  Add more cider if the sauce starts getting thick. At this stage, you can either mash the sauce in the pot or puree it in a food processor.  You can also leave it as is.
Drain the cooked pasta and return it to the cooking pot.  Pour in most of the sauce, saving about a cup , and the parmesan, and thoroughly combine.
