Thanks for a great meal! I made a bit extra - so the left overs were put into a smaller cassarole, topped with mashed potato and put in the freezer for a quick meal at a later date. I also added a sprinkle of italian herbs. Thanks again for some lovely comfort food!

I made this meatloaf for dinner tonight and it was terrific! I followed the recipe as written and it was moist, done at the given time, and very tasty. My husband really liked it. I also like that it is a smaller recipe, most meatloaf recipes call for 1.5-2 lbs. of meat. I will definitely make this again.

This was a nice meatloaf. I enjoyed the glaze on the top. I am not sure I could really distinguish the pasta sauce in the meatloaf, so I think when I make it again, I may use catsup, unless I happen to have some leftover sauce on hand.
