Italian Meatloaf Recipe

This Italian meatloaf recipe is a nice change from ordinary meatloaf dishes. Glazed over with tomato sauce and surrounded by seasoned potatoes, this hearty dish will delight all.

This meal brings back memories of my childhood. I can remember my brothers and me coming in from playing outside on a cool autumn day, sitting down to this wonderful meal. Just makes me want to smile! Heck, it makes me want to eat!

Mamma usually served this dish during the cooler months but it can be enjoyed all year round as well. I have no doubt you and your family will enjoy it.

Buon Appetito!
