I happen to really like chicken Marsala and decided I could get those same great flavors into a meatloaf. Because who doesn’t want to elevate a loaf of meat?

The Marsala sauce can be made ahead as well. Store in an airtight container until ready to use within 3-4 days. Once it is ready to be eaten, place in a saucepan on the stove and heat through.
