Everyone loves this tender meat loaf, which is seasoned with a hint sage. It's good for family get-togethers, picnics and Super Bowls parties. You're sure to get rave reviews whenever you serve it. —Edie DeSpain of Logan, Utah

"This is incredible! It tastes like heavon and melts in your mouth. People are astonished when I tell them it is a low fat and low calorie dish. I have also modified it and added blue cheese crumbles within the meatloaf and a little in the sauce topping. YUM!! About 1/2 cup or so. I have also made meatballs with this recipe and doubled the sauce to put in a small crock pot. I cook the meatballs first, then place in a crockpot with the sauce to serve at a buffet or as an appetizer. EVERYONE asks me for the recipe, and no one can believe meatloaf could taste this good!!!!"
