    **Mandy**'s Note:

    Whenever I cook meatloaf Millennium Meatloaf (Using Vegemite) I always have leftovers. Even though I love meatloaf sandwiches I thought this was a great idea for something different. I saw Rachael Ray cook it and just had to write down the recipe. It's extremely economical & goes a loooong way, tasty too!

      Wow I just came across this on Rachel Ray's site too...looking for something to use up our leftover meatloaf it. Phenomenal! I customized: used the crockpot for ingredients 2-10 plus parmesan, mixed and heated on low for 5 hours. Then to our tastes: instead of ricotta I made a bechamel sauce (1/4 c butter, 6 1/2 tablespoons flour, 2 cups milk, 2 teaspoons salt, freshly ground pepper to taste, 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg to taste--make a roux with the butter and flour, gradually add in milk while stirring nonstop until almost boiling and sauce thickens to gravy consistency. Add spices). When sauce in crockpot was done I added the bechamel to it and mixed well, then added that to the al dente ziti noodles, sprinkled with mozarella and baked. Oh I crumbled the meatloaf to a ground meat consistency. I highly recommend to anyone, no one will ever know they're eating leftovers!
