Lighter Italian Meatloaf

7

When I\\\'m in the mood for comfort food, but don\\\'t want the extra calories, I turn to this lightened-up version of meatloaf. I found this recipe in Cooking Light and then revamped it to the recipe I used here. I usually serve this with mashed potatoes (just use the mashed potato recipe of your choice!) and a vegetable to keep it healthy and balanced.

6
1 lb. ground round (I used 85% lean ground beef)
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried minced garlic
1 small onion
1 carrot, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 oz. shredded provolone cheese
1/2 cup ketchup
2 large egg whites
Cooking Spray (I like Butter Flavored Pam)
1/3 cup ketchup (to spread on top- this is in addition to the 1/2 cup ketchup listed above)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 5-inch glass loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, use your hands to smoosh together the first 10 ingredients until thoroughly...
