    Italian Meatloaf & Spicy Ketchup with Lemon-Caper Roasted Vegetables
    Title
    • 12 oz Usda Prime Ground Beef
    • 1 Pasture-Raised Egg
    • 2 cloves Garlic
    • 1 Lemon
    • ¼ cup Panko Breadcrumbs
    • ¼ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
    • 1½ tsps Calabrian Chile Paste
    • 3 Tbsps Ketchup
    • 1 Tbsp Capers
    • 1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning (Whole Dried Basil, Sage, Oregano, Savory, Rosemary, Thyme & Marjoram)
    • 1 Delicata Squash
    • 6 oz Carrots
    Prepare & roast the vegetables
    1 Prepare & roast the vegetables

    Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Line two sheet pans with foil. Cut off and discard the ends of the squash. Halve lengthwise; using a spoon, scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds. Cut the squash crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel the carrots; halve crosswise, then quarter lengthwise. Transfer to one sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 21 to 23 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Meanwhile, peel 2 cloves of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lemon to get 1 teaspoon. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Roughly chop the capers. In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon zest, chopped capers, the juice of 2 lemon wedges, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. In a separate bowl, combine the ketchup and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

    Evenly coat the center of the remaining sheet pan with a drizzle of olive oil. In a large bowl, combine the beef, egg, Italian seasoning, garlic paste, breadcrumbs, and half the parmesan; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Transfer to the oiled portion of the sheet pan. Shape into a tightly packed loaf, about 7 inches by 3 inches. Transfer half the spicy ketchup to a separate bowl and set aside for serving. Evenly top the meatloaf with the remaining spicy ketchup. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.* Remove from the oven and let rest at least 2 minutes.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 160°F for beef.
