Recipe Notes

Meatloaf is fantastic because you can make it on a Sunday in about 20 minutes prep time. The great thing is that you’ll have leftovers for the week. This is a great variation on meatloaf with everything in one pan – protein, great carbs, and veggies all wrapped up in good fats and great Tuscan seasoning. Serve this with a great side salad and you are set.
