Turkey Meatloaf

I absolutely love to cook and eat. One of my struggles is to cook food that is good and is good for me. I am obsessed with this meatloaf. It is so tasty and moist. My husband loves it too. Makes for a great dinner with smashed potatoes and veggies. This recipe is from Giada and it is amazing. You must try it and tell me what you think. Ingredients Vegetable cooking spray 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs 1/3 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 1/4 cup chopped garlic and herb-marinated sun-dried tomatoes 2 cloves garlic, minced, optional 2 eggs, at room temperature, lightly beaten 2 tablespoons whole milk 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1 pound ground turkey, preferably dark meat Directions Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl, stir together the bread crumbs, parsley, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, if using, eggs, milk, feta, salt, and pepper. Add the turkey and gently stir to combine, being careful not to overwork the meat. Carefully pack the meat mixture into the prepared pan and bake until the internal temperature registers 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, about 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and slice. Put on a serving platter and serve.
