    Nonstick cooking spray
    1 c. Italian-style breadcrumbs
    1/2 c. nonfat milk
    2 T. Olive oil
    1/2 onion, finely chopped
    2 celery stalks, finely chopped
    1 lb. lean ground turkey
    1/2 c. grated Parmesan
    1/2 c. carrot puree
    1/4 c. ketchup
    1 t. salt
    1/8 t. pepper
    1 c. tomato sauce
    4 slices turkey bacon


1. Preheat the oven to 350. Coat a 9x5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

2. In a large bowl, soak the breadcrumbs in milk.

3. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set it over medium-high heat. When the skittle is hot, add the oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, 7-10 minutes longer. Scrape the mixture into the bowl with the breadcrumbs. Add the turkey, Parmesan, carrot puree, ketchup, salt, and pepper, and stir to combine.

4. Turn the mixture into the loaf pan and smooth the top. Spread the tomato sauce over the meatloaf and lay the strips of bacon on top. Bake until the center on the meatloaf is no longer pink and the bacon begins to brown, 45 to 50 minutes. Cut into slices and serve.
