Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 pounds (680 g) ground beef
  2. 3 tablespoons (45 ml) olive oil
  3. 2 medium zucchini, chopped (about 1 cups, or 190 g)
  4. 1 medium onion, chopped
  5. 2 or 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  6. 2 tablespoons (7.6 g) snipped fresh parsley
  7. 1 egg
  8. cup (75 g) grated Parmesan cheese
  9. 1 teaspoon salt
  10. teaspoon pepper

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350F (180C, or gas mark 4).

Heat the olive oil in a skillet and saute the zucchini, onion, and garlic in it for 7 to 8 minutes.

Let the vegetables cool a bit and then put them in a big bowl with the beef, parsley, egg, cheese, salt, and pepper.

Using clean hands, mix the ingredients thoroughly.

Take the rather soft meat mixture and put it in a big loaf pan, if you like, or form the loaf right on a broiler rack so the grease will drip off.

(Keep in mind that if you do it this way, your loaf won't stand very high?it'll be about 2 inches [5 cm] thick.

) Bake for 75 to 90 minutes or until the juices run clear but the loaf is not dried out.
