I needed to make a quick meal and had some ground turkey in the fridge so I decided to make spaghetti and meatballs. There are several variations of meatball recipes so I just threw in what I had on hand. These are very good and pretty figure friendly.
1 lb. ground turkey
1 jar spaghetti sauce- I used Ragu Organic
1 lb. spaghetti
1 small onion, finely chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3-1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten
1 tbsp dried basil
1 tbsp dried parsley
1 tbsp dried oregano
salt and pepper
In large saucepot, bring water to a boil, enough to cover spaghetti. Heat 2 tbsp evoo in skillet over med. heat. In large bowl combine turkey, onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, egg, dried herbs, and salt and pepper. Combine. Roll into balls, about the size of a ping pong ball. Add meatballs to skillet. Cook about 4 mins per side, turning a few times. Once browned, add pasta sauce and simmer 15-20 mins.
While meatballs and sauce are simmering, salt the boiling water and drop pasta. Cook about 7-9 mins or until al dente. Drain.
Serve big mound of spaghetti with a few meatballs and some sauce. Top with some grated parm cheese!
