Spinach Stuffed Turkey Meatloaf

This is a great twist on traditional meatloaf. I think it would be even better topped with tomato sauce.

1 c. coarsely chopped mushrooms
1/4 c. chopped onion
1 (10 oz.) package spinach, thawed and drained
1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
1 lb. 97% lean ground turkey
3/4 c. Quaker oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1/2 c. skim milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 t Italian seasoning
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper

Heat oven to 375F. Lightly spray skillet with cooking spray. Cook mushrooms and onions over medium low heat until onion is tender; remove from heat. Add spinach, 1/4 c. mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese; mix well. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine turkey, oats, milk, egg, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper; mix lightly but thoroughly. Spoon 2/3 turkey mixture down center of loaf pan. Form indentation in middle and fill with reserved spinach mixture. Top with remaining turkey, forming a loaf and sealing edges completely. Bake 30-35 minutes, and sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese. Return to oven for 2 minutes, and let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
