0 Meatless Monday: Vegetarian Meatloaf

2 cups water
1 tsp. salt
1 cup lentils
1 small onion diced
1 cup quick-cooking oats
3/4 cup grated cheese (cheddar, jack or american)
1 egg, beaten
4.5 ounces spaghetti sauce
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dried basil
1 Tbl. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. seasoning salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper

Add salt to water and boil in a saucepan. Add lentils and simmer covered 25-30 minutes, until lentils are soft and most of water is evaporated. Remove from fire. Drain and partially mash lentils. Scrape into mixing bowl and allow to cool slightly. Stir in onion, oats and cheese until mixed. Add egg, tomato sauce, garlic, basil, parsley, seasoning salt and pepper. Mix well. Spoon into loaf pan that has been generously sprayed with Pam (non-stick cooking spray) or well-greased. Smooth top with back of spoon. Bake at 350 degrees for 30- 45 minutes until top of loaf is dry, firm and golden brown. Cool in pan on rack for about 10 minutes. Run a sharp knife around edges of pan then turn out loaf onto serving platter.

My Review
I didn't post a picture because if you saw it you probably wouldn't want to try it. But trust me, this recipe was goooood. I added a sauce on top and it tasted just like regular meatloaf minus the fat. I ate mine with ketchup and Nick ate his with mustard. I will definitely make this again.
