directions

  • Preaheat oven to 350°.
  • In a big mixing bowl, combine the beef, sausage, bread crumbs, parsley, cheese, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, and eggs (this works best if you use your hands).
  • Place the meat in the center of a 13x9 inch baking dish; shape mixture into a smooth rounded dome 3-4 inches high.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes.
  • Spoon or drain off any fat in the dish.
  • Pour the marinara sauce over the loaf and bake 20 minutes; let stand 10 minutes.
  • Serve meatloaf cut in wedges with about 2/3 cup sauce per serving.
  • Left-overs: cut into chunks and reheat in additional marinara sauce; serve spooned into hero or grinder rolls; add a few slices of mozzarella cheese and sauteed green pepper, if you wish.
