1 Teaspoon(s) Leaf basil, crumbled
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Leaf thyme, crumbled

3/4 Teaspoon(s) Salt, optional
1/8 Teaspoon(s) Pepper
1/4 Cup(s) Catsup

Preheat oven to moderate (375 degrees). Line jelly-roll pan with aluminum foil. Saute onion in oil in large skillet over medium heat 3 minutes. Add red pepper, garlic, basil, and thyme, saute 5 minutes. Combine beef, pork, oats, egg, whites, mozzarella, Parmesan, parsley, optional salt, and pepper in large bowl. Add vegetable mixture. Shape into large oval on prepared pan. Bake in moderate oven (375 degrees) for 30 minutes. Brush loaf with catsup. Bake 25 minutes or until cooked through. Let stand 10 minute before slicing.

Judi's Notes: I would bake this meat loaf in a loaf pan due to possible grease escaping from the jelly roll pan. I would also spoon off some of the fat from the loaf after 30 minutes.

4. Easter Lamb

1 Bulb of fresh fennel, anise
4 Tablespoon(s) Chopped garlic or more
if you like
Salt and plenty of fresh
Ground pepper

Get a leg of lamb and ask the butcher to bone it and butterfly it for you. Do not let him tie it in a roast but ask him for some butcher string so you can do it by yourself. When you get the lamb home, try to remove as much fat from the inside as possible if the butcher didn't clean it well. Now you are going to make your own roast of boneless lamb. To begin...Lay the meat out flat on a large clean surface skin side down. Cut off the fuzzy top of the fennel and wash thoroughly. cut into4" stalks using everything (save the bulb) Cover the meat first with salt and pepper. Spread the garlic all over the meat. Lay the pieces of fennel next spread over the meat. Now roll up like a jellyroll and start tying with the string about 2 " apart. Get it as tight as you can. Then tie it lengthwise tucking the ends in. Place in a roasting pan and lightly oil top and sides. Salt an pepper the roast. Cut the fennel bulb into chunks and drizzle with about 2 tbls of melted butter or oil. Bake at 350 for about 1 hour covered. Turn every 1/2 hour. Remove cover and continue to bake 1 hour uncovered. Before the last 1/2 hour add 1/2 cup white wine. When done, remove the meat to a warm platter. Do not cut too early, lamb gets cold fast. Put the roasting pan on top of the stove and make a gravy with the drippings. Add flour and water. You may even use a bit more wine or broth, adjust for salt, strain and serve on the side for the meat or mashed potatoes.
