We Have A Winner -- Meatloaf

Dinner got 12 thumbs up tonight which is probably a miracle seeing that it was meatloaf. I don't like meatloaf, but I actually enjoyed this one.

To make this magical meatloaf you need the following ingredients. Oh, and remember I cook for six. Here goes:

1 lb. ground chicken
1 lb. ground turkey
1 average yellow onion, finely chopped
1 small zucchini, finely chopped (to hide from the non-veggie eaters)
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon oregano
24 ounces Three Cheese Pasta Sauce
4 cups Mexican cheese, shredded
Dabble of Olive Oil

Saute onion, zucchini, spices in olive oil
Mix together chicken, turkey, pasta sauce, bread crumbs and 2 cups of cheese
Add seasoned veggies and mix well
Take half of mixture and pat into bottom of your baking dish of choice
Spread on remaining 2 cups of cheese
Top with other half of mixture
Seal the edges
Bake at 350f for at least one hour and 15 minutes

I didn't say it was a healthy meatloaf, just a tasty meatloaf. I actually didn't think that was possible.
