Florentine Turkey Meat Loaf

On the weekends, it's always to nice to cook something that you can take your time with, makes the house smell delicious, and is a tasty meal. This definitely is all of the above. Cancy loves meatloaf. I like eating healthy. So why not make a meat loaf with ground turkey and something healthy hidden in the middle. :)

Florentine Turkey Meatloaf

    1 pound ground turkey 
    1 cup spaghetti sauce, divided 
    1/2 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs 
    1/2 cup finely chopped onion 
    2 eggs, slightly beaten 
    2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese  
    1 package (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained 
    3/4 cup low-fat shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Line an 8- or 9- inch loaf pan with foil with dull side toward food.

Combine ground turkey, 1/4 cup spaghetti sauce, bread crumbs, onion, eggs, & Parmesan cheese in a medium bowl.

Press half of turkey mixture into foil-lined pan. Press a 1-inch indentation down center of mixture, leaving 1-inch thickness on all sides.

Toss spinach and mozzarella cheese together; spoon into indentation, mounding in center. Press remaining turkey mixture evenly over top, sealing edges.

Bake 45 to 50 minutes. Spoon remaining spaghetti sauce over meat loaf. Bake 15 minutes longer. Let stand 10 minutes.
