I’m a huge fan of taking restaurant meals and making them healthier. I found this Italian Sausage meatloaf at Murphy’s Restaurant, one of my favorite dinner spots in Atlanta, and made it cleaner by taking out the breadcrumbs and cheese they had packed in. I serve it with a little homemade marinara sauce and green beans. It’s so good, my mom even calls me and requests it once a month! Enjoy!
Great with warmed tomato sauce and green beans on the side!
