salt & pepper
Put moist, chopped sun-dried tomatoes in a food processor with fresh basil, parsley, olive oil and garlic.
Pulse about 30 seconds, until the mixture forms a chunky paste.
You can use drained, oil-packed dried tomatoes, or dry-packed. Rehydrate very firm ones for about 10 minutes in hot water.
Grate 1/2 an onion on a coarse grater — this time-saving trick adds a lot of flavor and moisture, and you don’t have to sauté onions!
Mix in the tomato mixture, cheese, breadcrumbs, salt, eggs and pepper.
Use a large fork to blend the meatloaf mixture, folding from the bottom to the top.
Pat the meat into a smooth football shape and put on a rimmed baking sheet, or pack into a loaf pan.
Bake at 425 40 minutes, then spread the ketchup over the top. Bake an additional 5-8 minutes.
