I used homemade marinara in this recipe and Stove Top Savory Herb stuffing. I chose to make one big loaf out of this recipe in my Perfect Meatloaf pan. My meat loaf was done in an hour-twenty minutes. I served this with extra marinara on the side. My family LOVED this meat loaf--my husband ate what everyone else did not. NO leftovers. He did suggest that I add a half pound of ground pork next time and then it would be the "perfect" meat loaf for meat loaf sandwiches. As is, no complaints here.


This was another of those recipes I turned to when I needed something to make with mostly pantry staples and a few odds and ends left in the fridge before I headed out of town on a trip. I knew when I read through it that it would be a great start but would need embellishing. I added fresh minced garlic and fresh parsley, and used some pizza sauce for the meat mixture. I put a good sized "stick shaped" piece of mozzarella in the center to make it extra gooey and cheesey. For the sauce poured over the loaves I used a small, specialty jarred sauce with artichokes, mixed with some tomato sauce I had put up from my garden. Topped it all with some freshly grated Parmesan, baked it at 350 degrees, uncovered, 45 minutes, and served it over spaghetti tossed with garlic, olive oil and fresh chives. Hubby and I really enjoyed this quick and easy dish--a cross between spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna and meatloaf!


These are really good. I used the string mozzarella cheese sticks and just wrapped the meat around them and that worked out well. Served it with spaghetti and garlic bread sticks. My family gobbled it up.
