This is a variation of a traditional meatloaf. Macaroni and cheddar cheese are used in this recipe. For a healthier version of this dish, I would use lean ground beef, skim milk, and reduced fat cheddar cheese. Also, the macaroni should be drained while it is still underdone so that it will have a good consistency in the meatloaf since it will continue to cook in the oven.

Hello scarlet102000, Thanks again for the comments and suggestions.

Thanks for the feedback......maybe I will give putting pasta in my meatloaf sometime. I think I would also add some tomato sauce along with a little extra shredded cheese.....or some chili sauce instead of tomato. Maybe it would be like a casserole in loaf form:)

Actually, it's not mushy at all. Similar to how pasta bakes and lasagna type recipes work, it stays tender but not mushy. Give it a try!

I have never heard of adding any pasta to a meatloaf mixture before. I guess it would be a way to stretch a meatloaf futher just not sure how it would taste. I would think the macaroni would turn mushy.
