Healthy Turkey Meatballs with Spaghetti

May 12, 2010

I used to get the magazine Cooking Light, about ten years ago I found this delicious recipe for turkey meatballs with marinara sauce in the magazine.  I have made it for others and they didn’t even know it was ground turkey and not ground hamburger.  If you are looking for a healthier way to eat your meatballs then you need to try this one out.

Turkey Meatballs

1 pound ground turkey

1/3 cup of Italian seasoned bread crumbs

1/4 cup of grated fresh Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup of chopped fresh flat leaf parsley

1/2 tsp dried basil

2 large egg whites

T.  canola oil or olive oil

  • Mix all ingredients together and shape into balls about 1 1/2 in.
  • Heat oil on med-high in skillet and cooked meatballs until all sides are browned.
  • Drain fat and oil off.
  • Now add you favorite pasta  sauce and cook on low for about 15 min.
  • Cook spaghetti until tender and drain.

Serves 4
