A quick casserole using leftover ingredients turns meatloaf, pasta, 2 kinds of cheese, and spices into a whole new meal.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) package rotini pasta
  • 4 slices leftover meatloaf, or to taste

Chef's Notes

Use any type of pasta you prefer.


  1. Waaaay too much pasta. I ended up feeling like I wasted my meatloaf. Try using 8oz of noodles instead and 1/4 tsp for each spice that says to use only a pinch.
  2. I followed the recipe exactly minus using the box of pasta I had on hand. I found this needed about double the sauce. The end result after hitting the oven was very dry. I think sauce wise you could just use a jar of spaghetti sauce if you were pressed on time. Add more cheese - Read more ...
