I wish I could tell you where I found this recipe for Turkey and Roasted Red Pepper Meatloaf on Greens, but I can't remember. It is partially jotted down onto a piece of paper -- obviously I was in a hurry when I stumbled upon it. I recently made it twice in the span of one week; good hot out-of-the-oven and good cold out-of-the-refrigerator the next day.

• 7 ounces roasted peppers, 1/2-inch dice
• Salt and freshly ground pepper

2. Combine turkey, onion, bread crumbs, egg, Parmesan, 2 tablespoons mustard, parsley, roasted peppers, 3/4 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Shape mixture into a loaf and bake approximately 45 minutes. Let rest 15 minutes.
