1. In a medium skillet saute the onion and green pepper in oil just until tender. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

2. In a large bowl add all the ingredients for the meatloaf including the onion/pepper mixture. Use a fork to blend everything together.

3. In a medium bowl stir together all of the filling ingredients.

4. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a 9x13 inch baking pan by lining with aluminum foil and then spraying it with non-stick spray.

5. To a large sheet of parchment paper or aluminum foil on a flat work surface add the meatloaf. Press it out evenly into a rectangle (9x12).

6. Put the filling mixture on top and spread it out evenly leaving an inch border on one long side.

7. Carefully roll up, long ways, beginning on the end without the border, as tightly as you can. You can use the parchment paper to help you roll.

9. Sprinkle the tops with Parmesan cheese and mozzarella.
