Truly outstanding and better than meatloaf. We followed instructions exactly with two minor changes- no veal, more of other two and 1/8 cup of red wine with sauce as well. I don't think either of these changes made big impact- this is just a great recipe as is! Sauce is good but meatloaf was good without it too (we served our sauce on the side)

Really tasty and juicy. I cooked this exactly to the recipe and my husband and I loved it. The mushroom gravy on top is an excellent touch.

Good meat loaf & sauce. Made to recipe, prepping pancetta mixture in the morning with final assembly in the evening. We cooked the carrots til they were tender (longer than called-for), otherwise made to recipe and baked free-form rather than in a tin. For the mushroom sauce, we deglazed the pan with a couple glugs of wine, otherwise followed directions. Nice change-up but the sauce really doesn't carry forward the bolognese theme, do you think? Served with riced potatoes & carrot, roasted brussels sprouts and more of the wine used in cooking.
