Meatloaf Pie **

(luckymommyto2boys ~ Amy ~ Recipezaar)

1 lb lean ground beef (I used ground turkey)
½ cup fresh breadcrumb (I used Italian breadcrumbs)
2 cups tomato sauce, divided
¼ cup chopped onion
¼ cup chopped green pepper
¼ teaspoon oregano
2 teaspoons salt, divided
Fresh ground black pepper
1 1/3 cups instant rice
1 cup water
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

Combine the ground beef, bread crumbs, ½ cup tomato sauce, onions, green pepper, oregano, salt and pepper. Mix gently but well. Pat into a 9 inch pie plate to form a shell with a 1-inch fluting around the edge.
Combine rice, water, tomato sauce, salt and ¼ cup of the cheese. Fill meat shell. Cover with foil and bake at 350*F for 25 minutes.
Uncover and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Continue to bake for another 10 to 15minutes, uncovered.
