    Little Italian Princess's Note:

    This is one of the best meatloaf I have ever had and it is simple to make! A little note - You can use any mixture you like for the meatloaf itself.

      Excellent. I am not sure I would describe it as "simple to make", though - rolling it up and transferring it to a baking tray was traumatic, and my meatloaf split and had to be patched. A couple of cracks opened up during cooking, and oozed a bit, but generally speaking it held together well. It tasted very good, and the combination of textures was interesting. I used pork mince for the meatloaf, and the flavours went very well together. After consulting the Cooking Q&A forum, I decided on 10 oz of spinach, and this turned out to be a perfect amount. And I only had room in my meatloaf for about 6 oz of cheese. Delicious recipe, which makes a pleasant change. Reviewed for Pick A Chef, Fall 2007.

      This is so delicious and so simple; I keep making it over and over again.<br/><br/>I use spaghetti sauce on the top as I usually don't have plain tomato sauce, and it works beautifully. It also freezes really well if you have leftovers: yummy lunch!
