Veggie Meatloaf

Posted on

Please hear me out on this one..this recipe is delicious. I walked in the door to Joe housing 2 huge pieces and he was TOTALLY skeptical of this dinner. He was said things like, “UGH asparagus in this?” If he wouldn’t have seen what went into the dinner he would have totally thought this dinner was made with hamburger meat! Instead it is filled with loads of this…
