Polpettone al sugo: meat loaf in tomato sauce – Antonio Carluccio


The best meatloaf is light and juicy.

Jill Dupleix recommends Antonio Carluccio’s recipe for meatloaf in tomato sauce from his An Invitation to Italian Cooking cookbook.

Let the meatloaf stand for 10-15 minutes before serving. This allows it to set and makes it much easier to slice.

Meatloaf is great served hot or cold, especially with a tomato sauce. Stephanie Alexander serves her’s with baked bananas, potato and a slice of bacon – even though her kids aren’t fussed on the cooked bananas!
