Italian Meatloaf

My mom has made this tasty version of meatloaf for us a few times and when she told me the recipe was on the Progresso Breadcrumbs box I had to try it out! I am not a huge meatloaf fan but this version has a subtle sweetness to it and it was fun to serve it with noodles instead of potatoes.

The Ingredients:

 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 cup milk
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/4 tsp pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 egg
3/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/4 cup ketchup

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together all ingredients except ketchup. Shape into a loaf and place in either an ungreased 9 x 5 loaf pan or a 13 x 9 baking dish. Spread ketchup over the top.

Bake, uncovered, 1 to 1 1/4 hours or until no longer pink in the middle. If you have a meat thermometer, the center should be at least 160 degrees when done. Let stand for 5 minutes, slice and serve!
