Cheesy Italian Meatloaf

My husband wanted meatloaf for dinner but I wanted to have something different.  I settled on making a different type of meatloaf and it was really delicious.  This is my Italian interpretation of our family meatloaf.


1 lb meatloaf mix (or ground beef)
1 egg
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup italian flavored bread crumbs
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup shredded asiago cheese
2 tablespoons italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup pasta sauce


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Mix all the ingredient until combined (do not over mix).  Shape meat mixture with your hands into a loaf and place in a loaf pan.  Spread pasta sauce over the top of the meatloaf and bake for 45 - 1 hr.  Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.

    1. Haha, well I did say it was my "interpretation" of Italian. Feel free to substitute the ketchup for pasta sauce to make it more "authentic". The ketchup is really meant be a flavoring, like a spice - it's not a major component of the dish. All recipes can always be altered to each individuals taste.
