Italian Style Meatloaf II

Italian Style Meatloaf II


"Great for any occasion, and absolutely delicious. Excellent served with noodles (or mashed potatoes) and corn. Substitute white bread for wheat bread if you're looking for a healthier meal. For the fresh bread crumbs, use 6 to 8 slices bread crumbled into tiny pieces."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, saute the carrot and onion for 2 minutes, or until onion is transparent. Add garlic and saute for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the parsley, beef, ketchup, 1/2 cup tomato sauce, bread and eggs, mixing well. Add the carrot/onion mixture and continue mixing, but do not over mix, as this will make the meatloaf dry. Transfer mixture to a 9x13 baking dish and form into a loaf.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 30 to 45 minutes.
  5. While loaf is baking, heat the remaining tomato sauce and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Pour over loaf when done.

Excellent recipe! It's easy to prepare and it's very tasty! My family, especially my children simply love it!!

AWESOME! I had a little trouble cooking it through - I think I made it too thick, and after 30 minutes when it was still fairly raw I smushed it and then it cooked fine. I used Emeril's Kicked U...

this was a yummie recipe my husband just love it. He smiled for two whole days and begged me to give him the recipe, which I refused,:) I follow all recipes the way they are written, but I alway...

This was a great recipe. It was very moist. I did not fix the tomatoe with sugar sauce. Instead, I added some tomatillo sauce, and it was absolutely wonderful! Thanks for sharing it!
