    * 1 pound lean ground turkey

    * 1 cup yellow onion, finely diced

    * 1 cup shredded zucchini, squeezed gently of excess moisture with kitchen towels

    * 2 cloves of garlic, minced

    * ½ cup panko bread crumbs

    * 1 egg

    * 1 tablespoon dijon mustard

    * 1 tablespoon honey

    * 2 tablespoons (or spoonfuls) of sauce

    * ½ teaspoon salt

    * ½ teaspoon pepper

    * 1 teaspoon dried oregano

    * 1 teaspoon dried basil

    * 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

    * 2 slices mozzarella cheese

    For the sauce:

    * 1 cup tomato sauce

    * 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

    * 1 tablespoon honey


    * Parsley

    Here's what you'll do:

    1.Preheat oven to 375˚F/190˚C.

    2.Prepare sauce in a small bowl and set aside.

    3.Combine all other ingredients (except for the cheese) in a large bowl until evenly distributed.

    4.Add in half of the meatloaf mixture to a greased loaf pan and flatten to form an even layer. Add slices of cheese to form a thin layer on top of the meatloaf. Fill loaf pan with remainder of meatloaf, smoothing out the final top layer.

    5.Top meatloaf with half of the tomato sauce mixture, using a spoon or rubber spatula to cover the top evenly. Reserve the other half of the tomato sauce.

    6.Bake for 1 hour, or until the internal temperature reads 160˚F/70˚C when poked with a meat thermometer.

    7.When the meatloaf is ready, heat your tomato sauce in the microwave or on a skillet, and drizzle on top of your meatloaf.

    8.Garnish with fresh chopped parsley.

    9.Serve with your favorite sides. (We used mashed sweet potatoes and asparagus.)
