1/2 cup V-8 juice

8 ounces mozzarella cheese (shredded 1-3/4 cups)
1 small clove garlic, minced
left over spaghetti sauce for topping

In a large bowl combine eggs, bread crumbs, tomato juice, parsley, oregano, salt, pepper and garlic. Stir in ground beef, mixing well. On foil shape meatloaf into 10"x12" rectangle. Arrange ham slices on top of beef mixture. Sprinkle 1-1/2 cups mozzarella cheese over ham. Starting at short end, carefully roll up meat, using foil to lift. Seal edges and ends. Place seam side down in pan. Cover with about 1 cup or more jar spaghetti sauce. Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella and bake an additional 5 minutes.
