1 egg, slightly beaten
1 3/4 cups garlic/ onion pasta sauce
1/4 cup seasoned fine dry bread crumbs
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
12 oz of ground beef
2 oz mozzarella cheese or 2 sticks of mozzarella string cheese
4 thin slices prosciutto or cooked ham
9 oz cooked fettuccine
Preheat oven to 400. In a medium bowl, combine egg, 1/4 cup pasta sauce, bread crumbs, salt, and pepper. Add ground beef to that mother.
Cut string cheese sticks in half, crosswise. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each cheese log. Add 1/4 of the meat mixture around each meat stick to form a loaf. Place in a shallow pan and cook for approx 20 minutes.
Arrange meatloaves over fettuccine. Spoon sauce over top. Add Parmesan if you like it.
-The pasta sauce I used was regular old Ragu Traditional.
-I used shredded mozzarella and basically used the sliced ham to make a burrito out of it. Then I stuck a bunch of pieces of the ground piece mixture around it.
-The pasta options we had were slim. I went with elbow macaroni. Next time, I'll try egg noodles.
-I may have used less ground beef than called for. I got three loaves out of it.
-I like Parmesan. I added a lot.
-The loaves were very tender and juicy. I'm not sure if that's because I may have under cooked them, but nobody got sick. So basically, I owned that recipe.
These fucking loaves were DELICIOUS and I've been whispering sweet nothings to a package of ground beef in the freezer ever since. The recipe was surprisingly easy to make and pretty much foolproof if I was able to make them on a whim and not fuck anything up.
If you like spaghetti bolognese, you'll like this. Because that's basically what this is.
