  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 sweet onion diced
  • 1 shallot diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic chopped finely or minced

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

For the Herbed Cream Cheese Layer:

  • In a medium sized bowl combine the softened cream cheese, basil and oregano. Stir until combined. Set aside.

For the Saucey Layer:

  • In a large skillet or frying pan, over medium heat, cook the onions and shallots in olive oil. Cook for about 3 or 4 minutes, till softened.
  • Add the ground beef and cook until browned and juices run clear.
  • Add the garlic in the last minute so it doesn't burn. Cook until fragrant, which takes 30 seconds to about a minute.
  • Add the sauce and spices to the skillet, cook until combined and warm, about 5 or so minutes.

For the Cheesy Layer:

  • Grate the cheese. Set aside.

Putting it all together:

  • Spray an 8 inch baking dish, or whatever serving dish you like, with non-stick spray.
  • Smooth the herbed cream cheese into the bottom of the dish.
  • Add the sauce mixture over top, smooth out evenly.
  • Toss the mozzarella cheese on top.
  • Pop in your preheated oven and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes, you want the top bubbling and starting to brown.
  • Remove carefully from the oven.
  • Serve with a big old cheesy smile!
