  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 1/2 cups chopped mushrooms
  • 1 sweet green pepper chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 3/4 teaspoons Italian herb seasoning
  • 1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup pasta sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushroom

Method

In skillet, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, chopped mushrooms, green pepper and half each of the salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until no mushroom liquid remains, 8 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk together eggs, bread crumbs, tomato paste, vinegar, garlic, Italian herb seasoning and remaining salt and pepper; mix in beef and 1 cup (250 mL) of the cooked mushroom mixture. Pat evenly into 9- x 5-inch (2 L) loaf pan.

Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until meat thermometer inserted in centre registers 170°F (75°C), about 1 hour and 10 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes; drain off any fat.

Spread pizza sauce over meat loaf; top with remaining cooked mushroom mixture, then cheese. Sprinkle sliced mushrooms over top. Bake in 450°F (230°C) oven until cheese is melted and starting to brown at edges, 10 to 15 minutes.
