Just received this from a good friend (who is also an excellent cook) and wanted to share. Meatloaf is one dish that I've never excelled in but this will be on tomorrow's menu.

Really Good Meatloaf Recipe

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 slice bread (broken or chopped finely)
1 egg
1 small vidalia onion or other sweet onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon table salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 tablespoons ketchup
1/2-2/3 cup whole milk or 1/2-2/3 cup half-and-half

4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 -4 tablespoons dark brown sugar, packed firm ( to taste)
1/2 cup ketchup

Meatloaf: Combine meat loaf ingredients and place into a loaf baking dish. Smooth out top.
Sauce: Combine sauce ingredients and pour on top and sides of meatloaf.
Bake at 350°F about 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until done.

1. The addition of 1 or 2 teaspoons of Kitchen Bouquet® makes this recipe very good.
2. Recipe should be"plump" from the addition of the milk or Half & Half. It should NOT be runny.
3. A second batch of sauce served hot is good to serve with the meatloaf.

I like Lasagna--but prefer the ability to portion out stuffed Manicotti that has the same flavor. The individual noodles are also easier than lasagna to place in freezer bags for future meals. Here's one recipe I use after I've made a pot of red Italian meat sauce:

Simple Manicotti Recipe

2 cups Pasta Sauce, divided
1-3/4 cups Ricotta Cheese
1-1/2 cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese (or "Kraft" grated)
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup Basil Pesto Sauce and Spread
12 cooked manicotti shells, rinsed in cold water
Heat oven to 350°F.
Spread 3/4 cup sauce onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish.

Mix cheeses, egg, and pesto until blended; spoon into resealable plastic bag. Use scissors to cut small corner from bottom of bag.

Fill manicotti shells by squeezing cheese mixture into both sides of each shell; place in baking dish.

Top with remaining sauce; cover.
Bake 40 min. or until heated through.
