Ordinary ground beef becomes extraordinary comfort food when mixed with mozzarella cheese and a blend of savory vegetables. Pick one of our tomato sauces (we love the roasted garlic) and spoon it over slices of meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and buttered green beans.
1/2 peeled yellow Onion
1 peeled, roughly chopped Carrot
1 roughly chopped stalk Celery
1 cup Button Mushrooms

Preheat the oven to 375°.
In a food processor, add the onion, carrot, celery, mushrooms and bell pepper and pulse on high until it is finely minced.
Add the processed mixture to a bowl along with the ground beef, eggs, cheeses, bread crumbs, and salt and pepper and mix thoroughly until combined.
Transfer the mixture to an 8 x 4 loaf pan and pack it in.
Bake at 375° for 45 minutes or until cooked throughout.
Finish by pouring the heated Rao’s Homemade® Marinara Sauce or Rao’s Homemade® Roasted Garlic Sauce on top.
