This Italian meatloaf is basically one big giant meatball, or at least that’s what I tell my kids so that they’ll eat it.
Add Italian flavor to a homestyle meat loaf recipe with tomato-basil pasta sauce, Italian breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese and oregano. Line the bottom part of the broiler pan with aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
