Ground turkey with skin can have more fat than ground beef. Although turkey breast is slightly leaner, it has less flavour than dark meat.


Olive oil

1 tsp(s)

Uncooked onion(s)

1 medium, chopped

Garlic clove(s)

2 clove(s), large, chopped

Canned crushed tomatoes

29 oz

Fresh basil

2 tbsp(s), chopped fresh or 2 teaspoons dried


½ tsp(s)

Table salt

¼ tsp(s)

Black pepper

¼ pinch, ground


  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil. Sauté the onion and garlic until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, basil, sugar, salt and pepper; cook, stirring as needed, until slightly thickened, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat; let stand, covered, 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, to prepare the meatballs, preheat the oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, bread crumbs, egg, onion, garlic, salt and pepper, mixing lightly. Form into 24 meatballs; place on a baking sheet. Bake until browned and slightly pink on the inside, 15-20 minutes. Add the meatballs to the sauce; cook, stirring as needed, until heated through, about 10 minutes.
  3. Cook the spaghetti according to package directions; drain and place in a serving bowl. Serve, topped with the sauce; sprinkle with the cheese.
