When mixture holds firm add basil, oregano, paprika and garlic powder. Pat mixture into a 9x5 ungreased loaf pan. Rub garlic into the top of the meatloaf. In a small bowl mix remaining spaghetti sauce and brown sugar. Pour over the meatloaf coating completely.


Heat oven to 325?. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour draining excess liquid in pan about 30 minutes through baking.
