Rated 5 out of 5 by from I tried this recipe on our next door neighbors. I tried this recipe on our next door neighbors. I did, however alter it a bit. I sliced 2 partially frozen links of mild Italian sausage and browned the pieces on both sides. I simmered in water a few minutes, to cook through, then added it to the loaf mixture. The remaining sauce in the jar was offered warmed and our guests ladeled it over their sliced meat loaf. All of us raved about it! Will definately make it this way again for company.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If you like traditional meatloaf..this is not for you! If you like traditional meatloaf..this is not for you! My kids kinda liked it but my husband hated it. And this comes from a man who, when I usually make meatloaf, I make two b/c he can eat one by himself! He didn't finish what he put on his plate of this. So, If you are a traditional meatloaf lover looking for just a little twist, not for you! It is very sour , bland and basically tasted like the meat in spaghetti. Will not try this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, simple to make & a nice twist to the standard meatloaf. Very good, simple to make & a nice twist to the standard meatloaf. I modified this by using half ground beef and half ground turkey (just my preference b/c I don't care for much beef). I also added more cheese than the recipe called for b/c I like cheese! The center was not cooked even after baking for an hour, so I will need to adjust the time next go round. This is a HUGE loaf! Overall it is very good and everyone liked it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The recipe was easy to make and was very tasty. The recipe was easy to make and was very tasty. I used spicy red pepper flavored spaghetti sauce. The meat mixture was too watery so I had to add some Italian style bread crumbs to get the correct consistency for meatloaf. Next time I make the dish, I will add some chopped red bell pepper, some sliced mushrooms, fresh basil, fresh parsley, and chopped onion to the recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good! Really good! Served with plain pasta with just a bit of olive oil and parm cheese and a salad on the side. This recipe made a LOT of meatloaf so I gave some of my leftovers to a neighbor. She and her family loved it, including the kids! Will be making this again for sure! Great recipe if you are cooking on a budget too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was good. It was good. It wasn't as greasy, but it seemed like it was missing something. Maybe a lil bit of bell pepper. And the consistency was a little too mushy for me. I like a firm meatloaf. Next time I will definately try it with bell pepper and maybe use only 3/4 of the stove top stuffing mix.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I made this and it didn't look good. I made this and it didn't look good. It looked very dry, but I was surprise that it actually tasted pretty good and it was soft. I didn't put the cheese, I just noticed that I forgot the cheese. Seeing the bits of stuff wasn't too appealing. Overall pretty good. Added to my recipe box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely fantastic! Absolutely fantastic! I was afraid to try meatloaf, after trying to eat some of my mom's scary renditions, but this meatloaf is truly breathtaking. I made it, for the first time, when we had company for dinner. It was a huge hit! One of the guests even asked to take the leftovers home!
