Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook the carrots and sweet peas until tender. Set the vegetables aside to cool. Place 3 eggs in a small pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, turn off the heat, place a lid on the pot and leave on the burner -- the eggs will be perfectly hard-boiled in 15 minutes.
Beat 2 eggs in the small bowl. Mix the ground beef with the breadcrumbs, tomato puree, parsley, rosemary and oregano. Add the beaten eggs and blend well. Stir in the vegetables and mix until all the ingredients are well incorporated.
Roll the mixture into a ball and divide in half. Grease the loaf pan with olive oil non-stick cooking spray. Place half the mixture into the base of the loaf pan, pressing the mixture firmly into the corners. Make a small indent in the mixture length-wise along the center. Sprinkle with the grated parmesan cheese.
Peel the hard-boiled eggs, leave whole and place them in a row in the indent in the meat mixture. Place the remaining meat mixture on top. Press firmly around the sides and on top to completely cover the eggs. Cover with aluminum foil and bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 1 to 1-1/2 hours. Test doneness by inserting a clean butter knife into the middle of the loaf; if it comes out dry, the muttloaf is done.
Turn the loaf out on a plate, and let cool completely. Cut into slices, sprinkle with chopped, fresh parsley and serve. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to three days.
