Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160 fan/gas 4 and grease an ovenproof dish. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, add the onions, sizzle for 5 mins, then remove half and put in a large bowl with the mince, egg, breadcrumbs, sage, feta and chopped bay. Season well and mix. Shape into a long sausage shape and transfer to the greased dish. Put the remaining bay leaves on top, drizzle with a little more oil and put in the oven for 40-45 mins until cooked through.

  2. Meanwhile, keep the remaining onions on a low heat in the pan. Cook for 2 mins, then increase the heat and pour in the passata with 70ml water. Bubble for 30 mins on a low heat, stirring often, or until the meatloaf is ready to come out of the oven. Season to taste.

  3. Cook the spaghetti following pack instructions. When everything is ready, toss the spaghetti in the tomato sauce, slice the meatloaf and let everyone help themselves.

Followed the recipe and we loved it. Found it a lovely combination and very tasty. Said it served 6 but there only 3 of us and it all went! I served as it was may hve gone further if id served crusty bread etc but we really enjoyed and shall definiately make it again.

I love Feta but this recipe used too much and overpowered the other ingredients, will try again and use half the suggested quantity. Nice combo with the spaghetti although I did add a few chillis.
