Another favorite of mine from Dayton's/Marshall Field's/Macy's. The pine nuts, spinach and red pepper sauce give it a different flair. Good with skin-on mashed potatoes

Oh man. You just took meatloaf to a whole another level. It looks and tastes very sophisticated but it's it's not difficult to make. Even though I used ground turkey and chicken broth it was heavenly. I would highly recommend it for entertaining on a budget. Thank you.
