    SusieQusie's Note:

    This simple recipe was devised from a rare flash of inspiration and ingredients I had on hand. I started out making a regular pasta dinner & got sidetracked after I had made the bread and thawed the meats. I used premade basil pesto & jarred onion-garlic marinara sauce to speed this dinner along. This could be easily changed to reflect what you have to use up. *Definitely a recipe for skinny, heart healthy folks! The rest of us can only lick our chops.

      I love this different twist for a meatloaf sandwich. It was a pretty simple dish to make and I liked the addition of pesto sauce to this sandwich - very unique and it goes great with the hot sausage. Thanks for sharing!
