1:  Line bottom and side of slow cooker with large sheet of foil. Lightly spray with cooking spray.

2:  In large bowl, stir together the ground beef, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and 2 eggs. Shape mixture into a loaf then place in slow cooker.

3:  Cover and cook on Low heat setting 5 to 6 hours.

4:  Uncover and pour the marinara or pasta sauce evenly over cooked meatloaf. Cover and cook on Low heat setting 15 minutes longer or until sauce is thoroughly heated.

5:  Use sides of foil to remove meatloaf from slow cooker to cutting board. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

Darlene’s Tips:  You can heat the marinara or pasta sauce in a saucepan on the stove if you want. Then you don’t have to pour it over the top.  You can let everyone pour as much as they want on their individual servings.  Add other ingredients to the meatloaf as desired like garlic, chopped peppers or pimentos, chopped black olives, additional seasonings, whatever!
