A lovely Italian twist that's popular in my Italian family. Incredibly easy and full of flavor. Sure wish I could remember where I got this...

  1. In nonstick large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Add red peppers and onions and cook until tender and lightly browned, 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring. Set vegetables aside to cool slightly.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  5. In large bowl, mix sausage meat, ground beef, eggs, bread crumbs, parmesan, tomato sauce, salt and cooked vegetables just until well combined, but not over mixed.
  6. In 13" by 9" ungreased metal baking pan (I use silicon pans), shape meat mixture into 9" by 5" loaf. Bake for 1 hour.
  7. Sprinkle mozzarella or fontina cheese down center of loaf in a 2-inch-wide strip and bake for 10 minutes longer.
  8. Let meatloaf stand 10 minutes before slicing.
