Really Good Vegetarian Meatloaf (really!)

High in fiber and protein, low in fat, easy and really yummy! I've always think meatloaf looks and smells
so delicious and savory so, as a vegetarian, I decided to make a no-meat version! This is basically
our favorite meatloaf recipe but with cooked mashed lentils instead of ground meat. The result is a
very tasty dinner!

INGREDIENTS

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

Add salt to water and boil in a saucepan.

brown.

Run a sharp knife around edges of pan then turn out loaf onto serving platter.
