Italian Turkey Meatloaf

 Round out the meal with Brussels sprouts and your favorite rice pilaf.
Makes 2 loaves (each loaf makes 6 servings)            Total time: 1 Hour, 35 Minutes

1        pound sliced button mushrooms
2        cups finely chopped onion
1        cup grated Parmesan cheese
3/4    cup Italian breadcrumbs
1        tablespoon minced fresh garlic
2       large eggs, lightly beaten
1       (7-oz.) container refrigerated basil pesto
2       tablespoons tomato paste
1-1/2 teaspoons table salt
1        teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2       (8-oz.) cans tomato sauce
2       (20-oz.) packages lean ground turkey

1.     Preheat oven to 400°. Process mushrooms in a food processor until finely ground. Stir together onion, next 5 ingredients, and mushrooms in a large bowl. Combine tomato paste, salt, pepper, and 1 (8-oz.) can tomato sauce; stir into mushroom mixture.

2.     Add turkey to mushroom mixture, and combine, using hands, until well blended. Line 2 (9- x 5-inch) loaf pans with heavy-duty aluminum foil; coat lightly with cooking spray. Divide turkey mixture between prepared pans. Place pans on a foil-lined baking sheet.

3.    Bake at 400° for 30 minutes. Spread remaining 8-oz. can tomato sauce over meatloaves. Bake 30 more minutes or until a thermometer inserted in center of meatloaf registers 165°.

4.    Let meatloaves stand 10 minutes. Slice and serve 1 loaf. Cool second loaf completely; cover and chill for later use.
