Macaroni and Cheese Meatloaf

The other day I was trying to figure out what to have for Sunday Supper and my Husband came up with a genius idea. We were talking about Sunday suppers back in the day when the priest or the pastor would come for Sunday Supper and at his house this always included a Meat ,a Macaroni and Cheese some type of greens or a  vegetable or two and don’t forget the potatoes too. So we were sitting and he said why cant we combine Sunday supper into one .He then said we could make a meatloaf with the macaroni built around it. I said okay, but what step it up a bit. With adding some ground sweet Italian sausage to it so it will give it that sweet and savory taste he agreed and I got started with making the Macaroni first.
