Zucchini, White Bean and Tomato Casserole
Meal Preparation Tips
Meatloaf is another family favorite that easily returns for an
encore in a sandwich or another meal, so its always best to make
more. This flavorful vegetable casserole is a great way to
incorporate some delicious and healthy beans into your diet and both
dishes can be cooked at the same time which gives you time to do
Timing & Cooking Plan
meatloaf 50 minutes + 10 minutes resting time
Casserole 45 minutes
medium onion, finely chopped
cloves garlic, chopped
- lbs ground beef
lb bulk Italian sausage
cup tomato sauce
large eggs, lightly beaten
cup panko breadcrumbs
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
Freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to Convection or Convection Roast 350 degrees and
line a rimmed baking sheet with a sheet of parchment paper.
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl with a light touch and
when combined scrape onto the prepared tray. Shape the mixture into
a long narrow log that will be easy to slice (wearing food prep
gloves really helps) and place in the oven and cook for 50 minutes.
The longer you can rest the meatloaf the easier it will be to slice.
