My husband and picky daughter really enjoyed this. I used ground turkey but thought this was kind of bland, and prefer regular meatloaf. Thanks though, it was still good!

This was the most successful meatloaf I have ever made. I wouldn't say I could really tell there was cheese in it, but I think it helped the overall consistency. I made this with ground chicken, and didn't have sausage but had some leftover turkey pepperoni hanging around, which I threw in, and added oregano, basil, and fennel seed for a sausage-like flavor. I used a mushroom/olive tomato sauce from a jar. I had frozen it and remembered too late that it needed to thaw, so I started it in the oven on the early side. It cooked uncovered for a very long time and still came out moist and flavorful, so I would imagine it's pretty hard to mess up! I think I'll be sticking with this one. Thanks.

I made this with all beef as I did not have any sausage. I also used fresh Mozzarella Cheese. It smelled awesome when I was just mixing it up. However, I would try it without the pasta sauce on top as I/we like a little firmer texture to our meatloaf. Thanks for sharing.

My BF was not excited about meatloaf, but after I made this he was!! I used pizza sauce and added parm cheese and italian seasonings.

Delicious! I made it as directed except: No basil, I used a full pound of 85%/15% ground beef, and NO onions. The italian sausage adds a remarkable zing. I used the hot and enjoyed the spicy-ness. My DH and his best friend (who knows from meatloaf) both really enjoyed it. It has replaced our old favority meatloaf. Oh - almost forgot - I assembled this the night before and then put it in a cold oven, turned on the oven and let it go for 1.5 hours. It worked perfectly and was a simple way to have a nice dinner on a work night. Thanks!
