Italian Meatloaf by B H & G

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by KateL

The filling makes the meat loaf interesting, reminds me of a pastaless lasagna. It was yummy. Came from BH&G "New" Cookbook (1968). I used Whole Wheat Triscuits.

This was great - I used 2% cottage cheese (didn't measure - but used the rest of the container) and my mushrooms were a 7 ounce can, otherwise made as directed. Served with mixed vegetables for a great and healthy dinner. Thanks for sharing!
