      1/8   ts           Pepper
      1/4   c            Catsup
 
   Preheat oven to moderate (375 degrees).  Line jelly-roll pan with aluminum
   foil.
   
   Saute onion in oil in large skillet over medium heat 3 minutes.  Add red
   pepper, garlic, basil, and thyme, saute 5 minutes.
   
   Combine beef, pork, oats, egg, whites, mozzarella, Parmesan, parsley,
   optional salt, and pepper in large bowl.  Add vegetable mixture.  Shape
   into large oval on prepared pan.
   
   Bake in moderate oven (375 degrees) for 30 minutes.  Brush loaf with
   catsup.  Bake 25 minutes or until cooked through.  Let stand 10 minute
   before slicing.
   
   Judi’s Notes:  I would bake this meat loaf in a loaf pan due to possible
   grease escaping from the jelly roll pan.  I would also spoon off some of
   the fat from the loaf after 30 minutes.
