Turkey Meat Loaf

I made this for the 1st time this past week. Both Dad and Mr. Hank liked it, so it must be fairly good for a low fat recipe. It's basically a big Italian meat ball.

1 lb. ground turkey breast meat
1 med onion, chopped
1 med carrot, chopped fine in the food processor (optional)
2 big cloves garlic, chopped
zest of one lemon, grated
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs (If you have Italian seasoned bread crumbs, use them and cut back a little on the basil and oregano)
1/2 cup skim milk
1 egg
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
salt and fresh ground pepper

Pam for baking dish
1 can tomato sauce

Soak break crumbs in sufficient milk to make a thickish paste. Add remaining ingredients except tomato sauce. Mix well. If it doesn't seem really moist, add more milk or beef stock. Season w/ salt and pepper. Put a spoonful in a dish and microwave for 30-40 seconds. Taste and correct seasonings. Spray oven-proof dish with Pam. Turn into dish and form meat loaf. Don't worry if it's too moist to form, just shape it into an oval. Top with tomato sauce. Add a little water around the sides if the loaf isn't moist enough.

Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes or until cooked through.
