Marinara & Mozzarella Meatloaf

This is an amazing recipe from George Stella.

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups marinara sauce, divided (make sure no added sugar or corn syrup)
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  1. PREHEAT oven to 350°, and ready a nonstick 9×5-inch loaf pan for baking.  (Or spray a regular loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.)
  2. IN a large bowl, mix the ground beef, 1 cup of the marinara sauce, diced red onion, eggs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic, onion powder, salt and pepper.  (This is easiest done with your hands.)
  3. EVENLY fill loaf pan with the meatloaf mixture, patting with your hands to form an even top.  Bake uncovered for 45 minutes.
  4. REMOVE loaf from oven and spread with remaining 1/2 cup of marinara sauce, and then the mozzarella cheese over the top.  Return to oven and bake an additional 30 minutes, or until a meat thermometer registers 165°.  Drain fat from pan and let rest 10 minutes before cutting into 8 equal slices.
