I was looking for a quick-to-prepare meal as an alternate to meatloaf. A friend mentioned a rice and meat pie that her mom would make so I set out to find a recipe while waiting for my friends copy. Well this beat meatloaf hands down. The whole family enjoyed it. You could probably give it a Mexican spin using salsa. Only recommendation is to use 'no salt' tomato sauce or cut down on the salt added, because when you add the cheese it can be a bit too salty. Thanks for sharing!
