Recipes to Last All Week, Part 2: Lean Bean Meatloaf

October 10, 2014 – Hey everyone, it’s Liz from A Nut in a Nutshell again, and I’m back with another delicious recipe! If you missed my last dinner idea, check it out here.

This time I’m cooking up a meatloaf with a fresh pineapple mango salsa topping that gives it a perfect zesty flavor. It tastes just as yummy the next day by itself or sliced for sandwiches, so it’s another great recipe to double. We all love leftovers that will last all week and help ease the chaos of the dinner hour, right?

Since I’m such a big fan of the fresh produce at ALDI, this recipe puts it to good use again with pineapple, mango, tomatoes, sweet peppers and onion. I always feel like I’m feeding my family well when I include lots of fruits and veggies in a meal. I hope you love it!
