Ingredients

  • 1 package Stove Top Stuffing mix for Chicken
  • 1 jar 24 ounces spaghetti sauce, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves divided
  • 2 tablespoon Italian parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cups zucchini chopped
  • 3/4 cups Mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, add stuffing mix with half of the spaghetti sauce, garlic, ½ teaspoon oregano, parsley and pepper; mix well. Add meat and mix to incorporate all ingredients (I usually use my hand to make sure everything is incorporated).
  • Place meat in a 9x13 baking dish.
  • Add zucchini, remaining spaghetti sauce, ½ teaspoon oregano to a bowl and mix to combine. Spoon over meat mixture and cover with foil.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove foil and top with cheese. Bake for another 10 minutes uncovered. Meatloaf should be 160 degrees F with cheese bubbly and melted.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
