This is a great recipe for a small family. This one differs from the ones posted. I downloaded this recipe from TOH and revamped to suite our tastes.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a loaf pan (8 or 9 inch).
  3. Cook noodles according to package directions.
  4. While noodles are cooking, brown beef, onions, garlic and red pepper flakes over medium heat. Drain grease from pan.
  5. Stir in mushrooms and spaghetti sauce. Salt and pepper to taste. Simmer over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. In a small bowl combine egg, ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, parsley, and Italian seasoning until well blended. Pepper to taste.
  7. Spread 1/4 cup of meat mixture in prepared loaf pan.
  8. Trim noodles to fit pan (I just used 6 noodles and did not use trimmed pieces). Place two noodles over sauce.
  9. Layer with 1/3 of cheese mixture.
  10. Layer with 1/3 of remaining sauce.
  11. Layer with 1/3 of Italian Blend Cheese.
  12. Repeat layers twice, using noodles trimmings for one noodle.
  13. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.
  14. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
