    I used ground turkey & I substituted the bread crumbs with chopped mushrooms to make a carb free dish. It was great and very moist! Thanks! - 4/28/11

    This was great!!! I used ground turkey instead and added a half cup low fat ricotta cheese and only used a cup of the ww reduced fat mozarella cheese. If using the turkey i recommend shortening the cook time to make sure it doesnt dry out.... EXCELLENT! WILL MAKE AGAIN! - 3/20/08

    This is a lot like I make, and it looks like in the pic their are carrot strips in it, but it isn't a listed ingredient. ? I add them, fresh garlic and onions too. Would of gave 5 stars but I changed it a lot. - 3/14/13

    I made this twice. Once exactly as given and once modifying by adding mushrooms and nixing the bread crumbs at the request of my diabetic boyfriend. Fantastic! - 1/20/12

  • I used Shady Brooks Italian Seasoned Lean Ground Turkey and made my own bread crumbs from a recipe from Martha Stewart. I left out the spaghetti sauce. The changes I made cut over 100 calories off of this recipe and removed onions due to allergies. This went over really well with my whole family. - 10/1/13

  • I just made this for dinner tonight & it was DELICIOUS! We are growing silverbeet/chard so I used that & didn't have mozzarella so I subbed a little feta & tasty cheese. I also left out the tomato sauce & cheese on top; definitely making this again but I'll stick with my cheese combo! - 7/21/12

  • I made this last night and followed recipies almost exactly, except i used minced garlic in the meat and filling instead of garlic powder because I was out.

  • SUPERB! This was amazing. I used ground turkey because that is what I had on hand and did not have any sauce so I nixed that out. Even my husband wished he could've eaten more but was so full! Very very good. - 8/3/10

  • This was excellent!!! Added some fresh sliced mushrooms and onion with the spinach when I was sauting it and added a little more spices, oregano and basil and more garlic. I will definitely make this again! - 7/12/10

  • This was a good recipe however my meatloaf came out a little bland and I seasoned it beyond what the recipe called for. I'll have to switch up the spices next time to see if I can jazz it up a bit. Otherwise it was still a good edible meal!! - 12/29/09

  • This tasted amazing. I used ground moose meat which is very low fat so it tends to be dry a lot of time and is difficult to make a good meatloaf with. That was not the case with this recipe. It was super moist and very delicious. - 12/4/09
