I developed this recipe when my husband said he loves meatloaf but always hated ones with green bell pepper. Of course I had to put an Italian touch to it! I'm pretty proud of this recipe as I can say it is completely my own creation! Enjoy!
1In a small bowl tear white bread into small pieces, add milk until well absorbed. Set aside.
2In a large bowl combine ground beef,3/4 of the canned tomatoes(with juices), slightly beaten eggs, white bread with milk, 1 cup parmesan cheese, parsley, grated onion, salt and pepper.
3Once mixed well place in a 9" X 13" pan and form into a loaf. Spread remaining 1/4 of canned tomatoes(with juices) on top. Sprinkle with additional 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. Drizzle with olive oil.
4Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until juices run clear, at 350 degrees.
5Let rest 15 minutes before slicing so it doesn't fall apart.
