Ingredients

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 large zucchini, finely diced

1 red bell pepper, finely diced

1 yellow pepper, finely diced

1 yellow onion, finely diced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

5 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme leaves

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves

1/2 pound ground pork

1/2 pound ground veal

1 pound ground beef chuck

1 cup panko (Japanese) bread crumbs

1/2 cup freshly grated Romano

1 1/2 cups ketchup, divided

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saute pan over high heat. Add the zucchini, peppers, onion and salt and pepper, to taste, and cook until almost soft, 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and 1/4 teaspoon the red pepper flakes and cook for 30 seconds. Set aside to cool.
  3. Whisk together the eggs and herbs in a large bowl. Add the meat, bread crumbs, cheese, 1/2 cup of the ketchup and 2 tablespoons of the balsamic vinegar and the vegetables and mix until just combined. Mold the meatloaf on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Whisk together the remaining ketchup and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl then brush the mixture over the entire loaf. Bake the meatloaf for approximately 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Remove from the oven and let rest 10 minutes before slicing.
