How to make the Meatloaf stuffed with zucchini
Wash and cut the courgettes into cubes, put a pan on the fire with 2 tablespoons of oil and a clove of garlic, once the garlic is browned, add the courgettes, sauté them for a few minutes and then add half a cup of water, cover and let the courgettes simmer for 5-6 minutes. Remove the lid and let the water dry, then turn off the heat and set the courgettes aside.
In a saucer, place half a glass of milk and 3 slices of toast and let the toast absorb the milk for a few moments. Squeeze the loaf and put it in a bowl with the minced meat, 2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan, 1 egg, salt, pepper.
Knead with your hands in order to mix all the ingredients, pour the mixture on a sheet of paper dusted with breadcrumbs, and mash it with a spoon to form a rectangle one centimeter thick.
Put the zucchini and cheese in the center, season with salt and pepper, close the meatloaf by wrapping it with parchment paper.
Add the breadcrumbs on the surface and a few flakes of butter
Grease a baking sheet with a little extra virgin olive oil and place the meatloaf in the pan, put in a preheated oven at 180-200 ° for about 40 minutes (if you increase the doses, the cooking time also increases, but in this case the first 30 minutes cover with aluminum foil, then remove it and let the crispy crust form on the surface).
