Italian Turkey meatloaf

Life Style Coach Becky is sharing one of her family favorites! Feeding 6 mouths tends to be a lot of cooking! It is a priority to feed her little ones good nutrition yet keeping it simple is very important to this mom.

One day Becky was browsing through some recipes trying to add new ones to her menu plan.  Having options that are simple and the whole family will enjoy is very important. She came across one for Parmesan turkey meatballs, and was intrigued because her family loves anything Italian.  However, making meatballs is a tedious job, especially when you are feeding 6 mouths!  Changing the concept to a meatloaf saved her time.  Next, she looked at ingredients and it passed the simple test, however it was a little too simple.  She decided to add a cup of cottage cheese because they like the creaminess it brings and you can’t have Italian without cheese!  Plus, with kiddos hiding veggies is always a bonus!  It was a big hit!
