Low Fat Italian Meatloaf

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by ColoradoCookin'

I'm on the Atkins diet, so I follow a lot of low fat/no carb dishes. These are ones I make myself, ... trial and error. This was a success. My family loves this Italian version of a meat loaf that I make with ground turkey. Calories, fat and cholesterol wre reduced by: Using egg whites instead of a whole egg Replacing ground beef with ground turkey breast Using shredded apples to add moisture that is lost by eliminating the beef fat Using a reduced-fat spaghetti sauce. 445 calories per serving before, 227 after.

It was great!But I only had ground chicken; threw a slice of whole wheat bread in a food processor- instead of bread crumbs.
