A nice change to regular meatloaf - very, very good! I did forget to put the garlic in it so I can't wait to try it again - we found this would easily feed 8 people - a nice company dish. Thanks for posting.
My mother made this once many years ago, and I was thrilled to find the recipe here! I put together the meat roll the night before and just put it in the oven when I got home from work, and everyone loved it. I'll definitely be making this again. Thank you.
How could you not love this??? An Italian meat loaf...and doesn't get any better. Thanks for posting. Alan
This reminded me of something my Italian Great-Grandmother made when I was a child, (with a few variations), so I made it. It got wonderful reviews, and tomorrow I will be serving leftovers with Cheesecake Factory Pasta with Mushroom Bolognese as kind of a meatball substitute. Very yummy!
I LOVE this stuff. My mom made it for us when we were kids. She gave me the original recipe(Better homes & Garden's) & said don't loose it. Well I did so I am glad to find it here. I tried rolling it for the first time and it was so easy. I used waxed paper though. I usually use tomato sauce but was out so I used a squirt of ketchup & it worked great. Despite how well I thought I sealed it a lot of cheese ran out(mom warned me this would happen lol)Thanks for posting
This has been one of my favorite meatloaf-type entrees for years.
This only lasted one dinner and one lunch at our house (2 adults and a 2 year old!), so needless to say we loved it! I used tomato sauce instead of the juice, and dry bread crumbs rather than the soft. Surprisingly easy to put together and roll too using the foil.
He ate all of it so its a def 5! Looked so good and smelt fab! THIS IS A DO AGAIN! Thanks Linda!
Delicious!!! I even used egg beaters, extra lean ground beef, low sodium v-8 and fat fee mozzerella cheese and AHA certified ham since my DH is a heart patient, and WOW it still was moist and flavorful!! I definitely will make this again and thank you for the great recipe.
I have been making this for years and it is great.I leave the ham out,put a little tomato sauce in the meat mixture and on top after it is rolled up then put mozzarella cheese on top of that.
