Try a new twist on an old favorite! Using lean ground turkey instead of beef to make "meatballs" makes for an exciting flavor change, not to mention a low-fat meal.
Ingredients

uncooked extra lean ground turkey breast

1 pound(s), lean

egg white(s)

3 large

poultry seasoning

½ tsp

garlic clove(s)

1 small clove(s), minced

table salt

¼ tsp

uncooked spaghetti

8 oz

dried plain breadcrumbs

cup(s)

canned tomato sauce

1 cup(s)

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.
