Italian Meat Loaf

The inspiration for this recipe was one in the most recent Pillsbury recipe book that you probably saw at the grocery check stand. Except with a little careful switching of ingredients, ours has 119 mg of sodium per serving instead of the 900 their's had.

1 1/4 lb Ground Beef
3/4 lb Ground Pork
1 t Black Pepper
1/2 t Garlic,Minced
1/2 t Coriander
1/4 t Fennel Seed
1 Egg
8 oz No Salt Added Tomato Sauce
8 oz Fresh Mozzarella,Shredded
2 c Spinach
1/4 c Bread Crumbs,From Low Sodium Bread

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix together meat, spices, egg, bread crumbs and 1/2 cup of the tomato sauce. Space a large piece of foil with non-stick vegetable oil spray. Pat meat mixture to a 12 by 18 inch rectangle on foil. Sprinkle evenly with cheese, pressing into meat. Top with spinach. Starting at the short end, roll up tightly, using foil to start roll. Seal ends. Transfer to 12x9 inch baking dish. Bake 1 hour. Spread remaining sauce over top and bake 15 minutes longer.
