    This is a Marcella recipe which appears in several of her books, including ‘Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking’. It is fabulous and I’ve become addicted to it. I’ve been substituting wonderful organic turkey (dark and white mixed) with no loss of flavor. One of the best meatloaf recipes I’ve ever made.

    I made this over the weekend and it was delicious! Like Sam above, I used fresh mushrooms and beef stock for the sauce, and I used olive oil in place of vegetable oil – really rich and yummy (I posted my version on my site with a link to yrs) Thanks for another great recipe. Hmmm now I am thinking of adding onions to the sauce….

    I made this dish tonight. I knew it was a winner when my husband took the first bite and went “mmMMMMMMmmmmmm” (something he rarely does, as food just doesn’t excite him.) I had to make some minor modifications, because the ingredients I had on hand were limited. (I had to use fresh baby bellas, and added a little beef stock since I didn’t have the mushroom water to work with.)

    We served it with garlic mashed potatoes, and by the end of the meal, were scraping the leftover sauce out of the pot with a piece of bread. :)

    This recipe is definitely one for the books. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    I also am allergic to mushrooms. That is a real pain in the neck since I love Chinese food and so many dishes there use mushrooms. I have learned to make sure the waiter knows that I mean it when I say NO MUSHROOMS.

    Just an idea from a small restaurant I used to go to in Covington, Ky. They make an Oriental sweet and sour chicken salad that has mushrooms in it. When I told them I am allergic to mushrooms but the rest of it sounded great, they made it using crumbled up bacon and caramelized onions instead of mushrooms. It works great and in fact a friend who is a big mushroom fan liked the version they made for me better.

    I would think the combination would work well here also. I have done this with several things where the mushrooms would be an integral part of the dish and the replacement works just fine.

    Ever since I first tried this recipe, it has been a huge hit. I have used ground turkey breast, and it’s just as great.
