Not much harder to make than plain meat loaf, this dressed-up version is nice enough for company.
lb extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef
lb bulk Italian sausage
can (8 oz) pizza sauce
cup Progresso™ Italian style bread crumbs
cups shredded 6 cheese Italian cheese blend (8 oz)
cups loosely packed fresh spinach leaves
Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, mix ground beef, sausage, egg, 1/2 cup of the pizza sauce, the bread crumbs and pepper.
On foil, pat mixture to12x8-inch rectangle. Sprinkle evenly with cheese; gently press into meat. Top with spinach. Starting at short end, roll up tightly, using foil to start roll and tucking in spinach leaves; seal ends. Place seam side down in ungreased 12x8-inch (2 quart) glass baking dish.
Bake 1 hour. Spread remaining pizza sauce over top. Bake 15 minutes longer or until thermometer inserted in meat loaf reads 160°F. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
Use foil to make rolling the meat loaf easier. Then, using the foil, transfer the meat loaf to the pan and bake on the foil to make cleanup quicker.
