This was very easy to make, and tasted great. What a neat spin on meatloaf. My meatloaf-hating boyfriend loved it. Thanks so much!

  2. Pat the mixture evenly to cover the bottom of a 13x9 inch baking dish; bake for 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a skillet, heat the oil; cook the onion and garlic over med-low heat, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes or until the onion is very soft.
  4. Spread the onion and the remaining ¾ cup marinara sauce over the partially cooked meat, then layer with the cheese and pepperoni.
  5. Return to the oven and bake 20 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
