Turkey Meatballs with Whole Wheat Spaghetti

I found a recipe for Turkey Meatballs on FoodNetwork.com a few years ago and it has been a regular in my family ever since. It is a recipe from Ellie Krieger. I only changed two things: I substituted fresh white bread crumbs with Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs that I always have in my pantry.  I used Minced Garlic that I found in the produce section instead of Fresh Garlic Cloves. The meatballs are so simple to make, but I will warn you: They will smell AMAZING broiling! :-)

 

Lets get started with what you will need. We are a family that LOVES leftovers, so this recipe is for a double batch:

  • 3lbs of Lean Ground Turkey Seasoned with Salt and Pepper
  • 1 Cup of Finely Grated Carrot
  • 1 Cup of Finely Chopped Onion
  • 4 Large Garlic Cloves, Minced
  • 1 Cup of Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs
  • 4 Tablespoons of Minced Fresh Parsley
  • 4 Teaspoons of Minced Fresh Thyme
  • 2 Eggs Lightly Beaten
  • Cooking Spray
