for the loaf:
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1/3 loaf day old Italian bread soaked in water, squeezed and crumbled
2 cloves of garlic chopped (I grated them on a rasp)
1 hand full of grated cheese
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
salt and pepper
chunks of cheese for the middle (any mild kind like mozzarella)
mix and shape into a loaf and make a trench add cheese and pinch closed bake in 350 oven for about 45 min.
for the sauce:
1 10 oz pkg mushrooms sliced
2 8 oz cans tomato sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt, pepper and my magic ingredient adobo
saute the mushrooms in oil until brown add tomato sauce, ketchup and season. Simmer until meatloaf is just about done. Pour sauce over meatloaf and cook another 5 min.
