Turkey Meatloaf

My husband is a meat and potato kind of guy. And he loves any type of meatloaf. I've tried quite a few meatloaf recipes and this one has been the best I've tried. Its adapted from Giada Di Laurentis' Stuffed meatloaf recipe. It comes out really moist and flavorful. Its great with mashed potatoes. This is another great make-ahead recipe that I like to do.

1 small onion, grated
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
2 eggs
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. black pepper
2/3 cup bread crumbs
1 cup grated parmesan
1 1/2 lb. ground turkey
1/2 cup marinara sauce
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1) Pre eat oven to 350 degrees F.

2) Whisk together the first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in parmesan and bread crumbs. Mix in ground turkey. Place mixture into a loaf pan leaving about a 1-inch border around the edges.

3) Spoon marinara sauce over the meatloaf and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake uncovered until meatloaf is firm to the touch and has pulled away from the sides of the pan, approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes.
