In a large bowl, combine all ingredients up to the spinach. Blend well. (Using clean hands works best.) Lightly dampen workspace and put down 2 sheets of wax paper to make a space appx. 19x16-inches. Spray wax paper with cooking oil spray. Place meat mixture onto wax paper and spread out to make a rectangle a little smaller than the wax paper. After getting it evenly spread, place sliced pieces of mozzarella and drained spinach all over. Start from the end towards you and using the wax paper start rolling in jelly roll style. When you get to the end, tightly seal all edges together. Place seam side down in a greased 9x13-inch baking pan. Cook in a preheated 375-degree oven for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees for the rest of the cooking time: 35 -45 more minutes. Let rest before cutting.

  • You just use the wax paper to start rolling meat, make sure it does not get rolled in with the meatloaf

  • If using wax paper to roll up, how do you get it out before baking? Or do you just use to get roll started?

  • As far as I know, Rachel Ray was the first person I ever heard use EVOO. I believe she coined the shortcut!

  • This recipe must be from Rachael Ray since she is the only person who thinks that it is too cute to say "EVOO" which means Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I would suggest that next time an abbrevation is used, make a note what it means for others.

  • What a good idea! I will have to try this recipe, and I'm sure, looking at the ingredients, it will be awesome. I may try it with a little feta cheese, also, to give it a little Mediterranean kick!
    By the way - EVOO is Extra Virgin Olive Oil-it's used so much more often in cooking now, we've taken to shortening it.....
