This is baking in my oven as we speak. This recipe is my version of PaleOMG's Italian Meatloaf with subs based on that I already had on hand.

For the meatloaf:
- 1lb grass fed ground beef
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 1 jar roasted red peppers, chopped (about 1.5 actual roasted peppers. Ain't nobody got time fo' dat.)
- ¼ cup tomato sauce (generic, W30 compliant marinara sauce from a jar)
- 1 egg, whisked
- ¾ cup almond flour
- 1 Tbsp italian herb blend
- salt and pepper, to taste
- olive oil, for sauteing

For the sauce:
- ¾ cup tomato sauce
- 1 Tbsp italian herb blend
- salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees (started at 350 degrees because I had other things in the oven, will turn up when other thing is done).

Place a medium skillet over medium heat and add a tablespoon or two of olive oil. Then add onion to the pan. Cook until onions have become soft and translucent.

Once they are done cooking, add them to a bowl along with the rest of the ingredients for your meatloaf and use your hands to mix it all together.

Press ingredients into a medium sized pyrex pan (like 9" x 13"?) and bake for 35-40 minutes.

Once your meatloaf is almost done cooking, add your sauce ingredients to a saucepan to heat up until slightly bubbly.

Let meatloaf cool slightly then add sauce on top. (I may try browning a bit with sauce on top.)

This was so good I've made it twice so far! It's super easy and makes great leftovers. This is a simplified version of a recipe I got from The Fresh 20:

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb bulk italian sausage (I used pork)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 bunch broccolini or broccoli rabe, chopped
2 green bell peppers, diced
Juice of one lemon
1/2c chopped fresh basil
2 cups cooked rice, brown or white
salt and pepper to taste

The rice can be made ahead of time, but both times I made it I just made it in the rice cooker as I was chopping the vegetables. Use stock instead of water when cooking the rice for extra flavor.

  1. Heat a large saucepan over medium high heat and add olive oil and sausage. Cook until sausage is cooked through and slightly browned, chopping into small pieces with spatula as you cook.

  2. Add garlic, broccolini, bell peppers and a pinch of salt and cook until just tender for about 3 - 5 minutes.

  3. Turn off the heat and add lemon juice, basil and rice. Stir well and cover for a couple of minutes before serving to ensure peppers are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
