Not your plain ol' meatloaf, but still traditional enough for the purists. This one is sure to please everyone in your family.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Lightly oil a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan. If using a silicone pan, place on a sturdy baking sheet.
In a large bowl, combine beef, sausage, onion, bell pepper, garlic, bread crumbs, optional wine, egg, Worcestershire, parsley, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, Parmesan and 1/2 cup each tomato sauce and mozzarella. Spoon into prepared pan and gently pack down. Bake 45 minutes. Pour off drippings.
Spread remaining tomato sauce on top of the loaf and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup mozzarella. Bake until an internal temperature reaches 160 degrees on an instant read thermometer. The cheese should be melted and the sauce should be bubbling. Let stand 10 minutes, pour off drippings, and remove from pan before slicing.
Everyone enjoyed this, but most importantly, my son (who was not previously a meatloaf fan) gave this one 5 stars and told me that when I make meatloaf again, it should be this one. So that alone earns five stars in my book :o)
