This is my next project for dinner. We have had a taste for meat loaf but something different . I will let you know when I try this one.
1 egg lightly beaten
1 cup pasta sauce
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/3 cup fresh basil
1 lb ground beef
1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
1 - 12 oz pkg green beans

crushed red pepper
Preheat oven to 450 Bring a saucepan of water to boiling. In a large bowl combine egg, 1/2 cup of pasta sauce,bread crumbs,2 tablespoons of the basil, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add beef and 1/2 cup of the cheese;mix well. Divide beef mixture in four equal portions. Shape each portion in a 5 1/2x 2 inch oval. Place on a baking pan. Spoon on remaining pasta sauce and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160
Meanwhile cook green beans in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain toss with olive oil and red pepper. Serve with meat loaves. Sprinkle all with remaining basil .
