Try a new twist on an old favourite! Using lean ground turkey instead of beef to make “meatballs” is an exciting flavour change, not to mention a good low-fat meal.

Ingredients

Uncooked ground turkey breast

1 oz

Egg white(s)

3 large

Dried plain breadcrumbs

Tbsp

Poultry seasoning

½ tsp(s)

Garlic clove(s)

1 clove(s), small, minced

Table salt

¼ tsp(s)

Uncooked spaghetti

8 oz

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Combine turkey, egg whites, bread crumbs, poultry seasoning, garlic and salt in a medium bowl. Shape about 1/4 cup each of turkey mixture into balls; arrange on a cookie sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake until turkey is no longer pink inside, about 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti according to manufacturer's directions, excluding oil and salt; drain. Combine cooked spaghetti with sauce and warm over medium heat. Remove from heat, add meatballs and toss to coat. Yields about 3/4 heaping cup of spaghetti and 2 meatballs per serving.
