My family loves this Italian version of meat loaf that I make with ground turkey!
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 apple, peeled, cored, and finely shredded
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup fine dry seasoned bread crumbs
1 pound ground turkey breast
2/3 cup reduced-fat spaghetti sauce
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
In a large bowl, stir together the egg whites, garlic, salt, basil, rosemary, and red pepper. Then stir in the apples, onions, and bread crumbs. Add the turkey and mix until well combined.
Spray a loaf pan with no stick spray. Pat the turkey mixture into the pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
Spread the spaghetti sauce over the turkey. Bake about 25 minutes more or until the turkey is no longer pink. Let stand 5 minutes. Transfer the loaf to a serving plate. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the top. Slice and serve.
