Iberian Meat Loaf

This was a nice change from a standard meat loaf. However, it was just a little bit dry, so next time I would either use ground dark meat turkey or a very lean ground beef. I served it with Spanish rice.

Preheat oven to 350°.
Combine turkey, 1/2 cup tomato sauce, and remaining ingredients except cooking spray in a large bowl.
Shape mixture into a 9 x 5-inch loaf on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Spread remaining 1/2 cup tomato sauce evenly over top of meat loaf. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a thermometer registers 165°. Let stand 10 minutes. Cut loaf into 12 slices.
