Ingredients:  
1 or 1 1/2 lb. ground beef - leanest
1 1/4 tsp. salt (ground sea salt or grey's salt)
1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper (not pre-ground)
1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped
1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1 egg, slightly beaten
8 oz. can diced tomatoes, with juice

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all the meatloaf ingredients well and place in a loaf pan. Pack loaf so that it has a "peak" rather than a flat surface. This will help any residual grease to drain to sides. Bake for 1 hour, add the brown sugar topping and put back in the over for 5 minutes. Warm the chef boyardee spaghetti while the meat loaf finishes browning then top and serve.
