Directions:

  1. Place all of the loaf ingredients and 3 tablespoons of the tomato sauce in a large bowl, and mix well. Coat a 9-x-5-inch meat loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray, and press the mixture into the pan to form a loaf.
  2. Bake uncovered at 350°F for 35 minutes. Place the remaining tomato sauce, the sugar, and the Italian seasoning in a small bowl, stir to mix, and pour over the meat loaf. Bake for 30 additional minutes, or until the meat is no longer pink inside and a meat thermometer registers 160F.
  3. Remove the loaf from the oven, and let sit for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
