Are you noticing a theme lately? I have SO many tomatoes that I keep adding them to everything! And yes, I have made sauce with them already too, but they just keep multiplying!

For today’s recipe, I used some of my all-time favorite flavors and incorporated them into this meatloaf; however, if meatloaf isn’t your thing, you can make them into hamburger patties, meatballs or individual serving loaves like I did with the Feta & Sage Chicken Mini Meatloaf as well.

To make this Italian Meatloaf, combine extra lean ground beef (you could also use ground chicken or turkey), eggs, fresh oregano, basil, garlic, onion, tomatoes, Italian breadcrumbs and grated Pecorino Romano cheese.  Mix well; then form into a loaf and bake in an oven safe dish at 350 degrees F for 45-50 minutes until cooked through.

Easy right? This Italian Meatloaf was deliciously moist and flavorful, but then again, how could it not be with all of those fantastic flavors. ~Enjoy!
