yea it's just puree'd butternut squash.
the recipe is pretty basic, in a bowl combine:
1.25 lbs ground pork
1.25 lbs ground beef
1 onion, minced
2 carrots, peeled, minced
2 celery stalks, minced
1 tbspn cilantro
1/4 to 1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 tbspn romano cheese
for the sauce:
combine 1 small can tomatoe paste with 16 oz of water and 2 diced roma tomatoes and simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened. season with salt and oregano. set aside.
- grease a loaf pan, and add 1/2 of the mixture.
- spread on a layer of ketchup just enough to glaze the top.
- add the second half of the mixture and pack tightly, being sure to press down on all sides making a small mound.
bake in preheated over at 365 for approx. 1 hour to 1 hour 20 minutes or until the internal temperature has reached 155 degrees
10 minutes before the loaf is done, spread the sauce over the top. add a squirt of ketchup and spread that on as well.
let stand 10 minutes. Drain fat. cut loaf while it is in the pan to prevent it from falling apart
