Italian Style Meatloaf

Italian Style Meatloaf with Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce

Serves: 8


3 Tbsp olive oil

½ cup onion, chopped

½ cup celery, chopped

½ cup carrot, chopped

½ cup red bell pepper, chopped

2 cloves garlic, chopped

2 eggs

¼ cup fresh basil, chopped

2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

1 tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

¼ cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 pounds ground beef

1 jar DelGrosso Roasted Garlic Sauce, divided


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat olive oil in a large pan on medium-high heat. Sauté onions, celery, carrots, and red peppers until soft.
  • Add garlic to the vegetables and sauté for one more minute. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • In a small bowl whisk together eggs, basil, parsley, salt and pepper.
  • In another small bowl mix together bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese until well-blended.
  • In a large bowl hand mix the ground beef, sautéed vegetables, egg mixture, and ½ cup of sauce until evenly combined. Add bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese and mix through.
  • Shape meat mixture into a 9x5 loaf and place in a baking dish.
  • Bake uncovered for 45 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and pour remaining sauce evenly over the top of the meatloaf.
  • Bake for 15 more minutes.
  • Transfer to a platter and serve with your favorite side dishes.  


For a slightly different flavor and texture, add the vegetables directly to the meat without sautéing. To substitute dried herbs for fresh, use 4 tsp of dried basil and 2 tsp of dried parsley.
