This recipe comes from my friend Shelley, who always has lots of tasty, healthy recipes. She sent me her adaptation of a Cooking Light meatloaf that she and her husband Colin have really enjoyed. Corey and I tried it out last night and it was great! Definitely worth sharing. Not only does it have only 250 calories per serving, it is also a simple recipe with a minimal number of ingredients, and it only requires about 30 minutes in the oven, so your dinner is ready fast! Thanks Shelley!

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Combine ketchup and mustard in small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Reserve 3 tbsp. of the ketchup mixture.
