(simply Ragu)

Instructions

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2 In a large bowl combine turkey, egg, basil, oregano, salt, and garlic powder.

3 Combine mixture with a spoon, and then by hand, until it is well incorporated.

4 Spread mixture on a large piece of parchment paper about 1inch thick.

5 Place strips of mozzarella along the edge of the meat mixture, leaving 1 inch on all sides uncovered by the mozzarella.

6 Spread pesto over mozzarella evenly.

7 Use parchment to roll the meat into a loaf. Transfer into a 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Very carefully, flip your meatloaf onto the baking dish, using the wax/parchment paper to help you release it from the pan.

8 Reshape the sides of the meatloaf and make sure all mozzarella is covered by the meat mixture.

9 Bake, uncovered, for 50-55 minutes in your preheated oven. During the last 10-15 minutes, pour spaghetti sauce on top of the meatloaf and continue baking, uncovered.
