Ingredients

2 Tbsp
olive oil, divided
2 c
diced bell peppers, any color, with tops, seeds and ribs removed
1 1/2 tsp
italian seasoning
2 lb
lean ground beef
1/2 c
grated onion
1 c

1/2 c

2 Tbsp

1/2 tsp

1/2 tsp

Step-By-Step

1In a large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp. oil over medium-high heat. Add diced peppers and Italian seasoning. Cook until peppers soften, stirring, about 5 minutes. Transfer cooked peppers to a small bowl and set aside.

2In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, onion, bread crumbs, milk, eggs, tomato paste, garlic, and salt and pepper until well combined.

3Transfer two-thirds of the meat mixture into a loaf pan. To make a well for the filling, press meat mixture into pan away from the center and up the sides.

4Fill center with cooked, diced pepper mixture. Top with remaining meat mixture, pressing sides together to seal edges. Brush top with remaining olive oil.

5Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack. Transfer to a cutting board or platter and rest 10 minutes before serving.
