Spaghetti and Meatball Bake and Cheesy Garlic and Herb Bread

Hey kids! This week has been SUPER long. Tomorrow is finally Friday! The hubby and I are going on a much needed date night and the girls are going to the gym. My awesome gym has Date night every Friday night. We take advantage of it every few weeks. Not sure what we will do, but I can guarantee there will be a cocktail or two involved for this mama :0

Tonight I made a riff on Spaghetti and Meatballs. I basically put all the cooked ingredients (pasta- whole wheat thin spaghetti, meatballs- frozen and thawed in a pan, and sauce- marinara that I added fresh basil and thyme to) in a casserole pan and topped with shredded mozzarella. I baked it for 15 minutes, right about when the cheese started to bubble and turn brown.

The V-shaped basil at the bottom has no meatballs. Perfect for some veggie pasta leftovers =)

I also made some garlic herb butter (3 tablespoons butter, 3 minced garlic, and 1 handful of chopped basil and thyme) that I slathered on some bread. Then I topped it with mozzarella. You are welcome! =) Amy
