This is my Mom’s recipe for Polpettone, Italian Meatloaf, which is delicious and super easy to prepare. My Mom always makes some extra sauce so she can serve penne or farfalle pasta on the side. Add a bottle of Poggio Grande Piano 100% Sangiovese for an incredible, authentic Italian meal. Buon Appetito!
Tip: I always have an ample supply of Homemade Tomato Sauce in the freezer, which makes this recipe even easier.
