1 lb ground beef
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tbsps chopped fresh basil
salt and pepper to taste
3/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
2 tbsps red wine
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 tbsps chopped red pepper
2 tbsps chopped sundried tomatoes
Combine well the first 7 ingredients. Take a piece of parchment and press the meat out to form a 6" X 10" rectangle, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. If planning on freezing the meatloaf, like I did, use plastic wrap instead.
Mix the vegetables together and spread evenly over meat leaving 1 inch at the top.
Use the parchment, or plastic wrap, to lift and roll meat jellyroll style. Roll with some pressure and seal the edge and sides together.
Bake uncovered in a 400F oven for 30 minutes.
Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
If you freeze the meatloaf, label it with the cooking instructions. When you want it, fully defrost it in the fridge the night before, then cook as usual.
