I made this recipe a while ago, but never rated it. It was absolutely delicious and not diffifult at all to make. The only thing I did differently was to make my own marinara. I will be making this again soon!! Thanks so much

Yummy and very easy, especially since the mushrooms do not need to be cooked first. Called it "pizza meat loaf" and the kids gobbled it down. Used Italian Bread Crumbs Recipe #54348 and baked in a loaf pan slightly larger than 9x5; though the raw meat loaf filled it to the top, no spills while cooking. Poured off the fat and liquid before serving. Would be wonderful with turkey Italian sausage, too. Thanks, Jim, for sharing the recipe!
