Ground turkey is a great leaner alternative to ground beef. However, it is dry, and needs lots of moisture to enhance its flavor. That is why adding a sauce is great way to boost flavor, but not unwanted fat, and equally importantly, boost flavor.
I grew up with my mom adding ketchup to her meatloaf and obviously that just is just adding a lot of sugar and not a lot of added health benefits that cooked tomatoes can provide. One of the first times I used Tomato Basil in cooking, besides pasta, was in turkey loaf. I have made it tons of times since, and have always used the Tomato Basil as an ingredient.
