Directions

To prepare meatloaf: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the breadcrumbs and beef stock; set aside. Sauté onions in oil until tender. Remove from heat and cool.

In a large bowl, combine eggs, ground beef, salt, pepper, pesto, pine nuts, onions, spinach, Worcestershire sauce and breadcrumb mixture, and mix until blended.

Spray a loaf pan with vegetable spray. Place meat mixture into pan. Bake until juices run clear, about 1 1/2 hrs. Remove pan from oven and let stand for 10 min.

To prepare sauce: In a large skillet over medium heat, warm olive oil. Add peppers and sauté until tender. Add beef broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water and add to the broth mixture. Simmer and stir until thickened. Serve over slices of meatloaf.
