Featured at Il Mito Trattoria from April 1st to April 6th with proceeds to support Oprah's Angel Network
I have never been one to cook. While I was married my husband did all of the cooking. I would occassionally cut out recipes that I thought looked good and would taste wonderful. This is one of those recipes. I cut it out and left it on the dinning room table for my husband to see. The first time he surprised me by making it was for Valentines Day dinner. For every Valentines thereafter, he would make this meatloaf with fresh asparagus and mushrooms.
Combine boiling water and tomatoes in a bowl; let stand 30 min. or until soft. Drain tomatoes; finely chop.

Combine 1/2 cup ketchup, bread crumbs, and the next 6 ingredients (bread crumbs through turkey) in a large bowl. Add tomatoes to meat mix. Shape meat mix into a loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Spread 1/3 cup ketchup over meat loaf.
Bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
