Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine ground beef, 1/3 cup pasta sauce, egg, Worcestershire, and bread crumbs in large bowl. Season, if desired, with salt and ground black pepper.
Shape into 8 x 12-inch rectangle in 13 x 9-inch baking or roasting pan.
Sprinkle 1-1/2 cups cheese down the center, leaving a 3/4-inch border. Roll, starting at long end, jelly-roll style. Press ends together to seal.
Bake uncovered 45 minutes. Pour remaining pasta sauce over meatloaf along with onion and green pepper and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
Bake an additional 15 minutes or until sauce is heated through and cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
