I made this up one day when I was feeling lazy, and I was very pleased with the result. This is a twist on an easy meatloaf. The vegetables and tabasco add a nice flavor. I originally used turkey in this recipe, but I imagine that any ground meat would work.

Really loved the different flavour of this meatloaf. My husband REALLY loved it. Next time I'll add an extra tomato, maybe even a grated carrot. Thanks for posting!

Made it with turkey and bourbon and some dried bread crumbs instead of saltines. And I didn't have a tomato (not really good this time of year in Michigan) so I gave it a squirt of ketchup instead. Really, really good. The Tabasco and bourbon gave it oomph and the zucchini gave it great texture. I made it last night and brought some for lunch today and I still want more. Very good stuff. Thanks!
