This is the very first recipe I ever found in a cookbook and made on my own (when I was in Jr. High School over 10 years ago). I found it in a book called, "Cooking With Kids".

This is a very delicious casserole. I cut the recipe in half and still had plenty for 4. I also sprinkled on a cup of shredded mozarella before the parmesan and baked it until it bubbled. We really enjoyed this! Thanks Amber!

The title is misleading as it really isn't a "meat loaf". Very taste hamburger+mac+cheese casserole. Thanks for sharing this one Amber.

I'm going to give 4 stars bc my DH loved it, though I thought it sort of plain. I expected the worcestershire flavor to come through a little more. I assembled this in the morning so it was ready to pop in the oven at dinner time. I served it with a loaf of fresh italian bread.
