Mushroom Sauce:


In large bowl, lightly whisk egg; mix in pasta sauce, bread crumbs, garlic, dill, pepper and salt. Add turkey and mix well. Divide in half; shape into oval loaves. Transfer to greased roasting pan; bake in 350°F (180°C) oven for 1 hour. Drain off fat and any coagulation in pan.

Mushroom Sauce: Meanwhile, in saucepan, bring chicken stock, mushrooms, pasta sauce, garlic and pepper to boil. Reduce heat to medium; simmer for 10 minutes.

In small bowl, mix cornstarch with 2 tbsp (25 mL) water; stir into sauce and boil until thickened, about 1 minute. (Make-ahead: Let loaves and sauce cool for 30 minutes; refrigerate until cold. Wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Or wrap individually in plastic wrap and enclose in freezer bags; divide sauce between 2 airtight containers. Freeze for up to 2 weeks; thaw in refrigerator.)

Evenly divide sauce over loaves; bake for 30 minutes.
