Ingredients

Meatloaf

1 pound ground chuck beef

8 ounces Italian sausage (hot or sweet), casing removed

8 ounces grated mozzarella cheese

1 1/4 cups Italian bread crumbs

1/2 cup finely chopped sundried tomatoes

1/4 cup finely diced yellow onion

4 to 5 cloves garlic, minced (1 1/2 tablespoons)

2 teaspoons dried oregano

2 teaspoons dried basil

Coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 eggs, lightly beaten

4 ounces (1/2 cup) tomato sauce

2 ounces (1/4 cup) dry red wine
