Healthy Turkey Meatloaf
This is a recipe that my mom used to make frequently when my brother and I were younger. It's healthy, quick to come together, and really delicious. Even my meat loving husband loves it. I really have no idea where the original recipe came from, but I've always remembered how to make it from memory. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

1 package ground turkey (around 1.25 lbs)
1 egg white
1 carrot, shredded
1 celery stalk, finely chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 - 3/4 cup italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup marinara sauce
shredded part skim mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan with non stick spray. In a large bowl, combine turkey, egg white, carrot, celery, onion, garlic, salt and pepper to taste, and bread crumbs. Mix with your hands until well combined and put in loaf pan. Drizzle marinara sauce over loaf and spread using a spoon. Sprinkle as much mozzarella cheese as you want over the whole loaf. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour. Slice and serve!
