Italian Style Meatloaf II

4.4
(50)

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 carrot, grated

  • ½ onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley

  • 2 pounds ground beef

  • ½ cup ketchup

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 ½ cups fresh bread crumbs

  • 1 cup tomato sauce

  • 1 teaspoon white sugar

Directions

  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.
