Simple and easy ! My whole family loves this recipe so much. If it were for them, I’d be making this every day! Give it a shot, you’ll love it!
This Italian meatloaf is basically a big, giant meatball, or at least that’s what I’m telling my kids to eat it. But, seriously, it’s similar to meatballs, except that it has a lot more flavor and is much easier to make. I love serving it with a large Italian salad – a family favorite – and parmesan mashed potatoes, but it’s delicious with pasta too. Leftovers are best the next day, sliced and covered with melted cheese in a warm sandwich.To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:
What do you need :
