Turkey Meatballs with Spaghetti
- Total Time
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.
uncooked ground turkey breast1 pound(s), lean
egg white(s)3 large
poultry seasoning½ tsp
garlic clove(s)1 clove(s), small, minced
table salt¼ tsp
uncooked spaghetti8 oz
dried plain breadcrumbs⅓ cup(s)
canned tomato sauce1 cup(s)
- Preheat oven to 375ºF.
- 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.
- 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.
