    Wasn't quite sure about the pizza sauce, but this was really, really good and definitely still meatloaf but with a nice change of pace. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing it.

    Followed your recipe right on down & had a great tasting meatloaf as a result! We particularly enjoyed the cheeses that were included here as well as the sauce ~ Very, very nice! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Gimme 5 tag]

    I wanted meatloaf, but I didn't want the everyday ordinary meatloaf.(As if anything could ever be wrong with ordinary meatloaf ;) ) So,when I saw the photo of this one I knew it had to be made.So, it was made on 2/11/09 for mine and SO's dinner.Since it was just the two of us,the recipe was cut down to serve just 4. I didn't know how to do just a 1/3 of an egg, so just 1 was used.I didn't have any fresh parsley, so a little over 1/2 teaspoon of dried was used.As for grating the onion I didn't, it was just diced very fine.For the pizza sauce, Recipe#108447 was used.Other than cutting the recipe in half,and the couple of changes to the ingredients the recipe was made as written. I served this over spaghetti and made Recipe#246744 to go with it.My SO said that this could be made again, that's saying something since he doesn't care that much for meatloaf. Thanks for posting and,"Keep Smiling :)"

    Very good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add the parsley as I am not a fan. My family really enjoyed this. They loved the cheese and the sauce. They said I can make this again :)
