This is a healthier version of meatballs that pairs nicely with many pasta dishes. By substituting ground turkey for ground beef makes the meatball lighter and does not compromise the flavor. This recipe makes about 22 turkey meatballs. I hope you enjoy this delicious recipe! Thanks for stopping by!

Ingredients
2 lbs of Lean Ground Turkey
½ cup Egg Substitute
¾ cup Panko Breadcrumbs
¾ cup Parmesan Cheese, shredded
¼ cup Water
Small Sweet Onion, finely chopped, about ½ cup
2 tsp Garlic, minced
2 tsp Parsley, dried
2 tsp Basil, dried
1 tsp Ground Black Pepper
48-ounces Seasoned Tomato Sauce

Tips
Depending upon how dry or moist your meatball mixture is will determine if you need to add more water. When making your meatballs, the mixture should be wet to keep them from drying out. The end result is a moist and tender meatball!

Preparation
Mix ingredients together. Form meatballs using a ¼ cup measuring cup. Place on a heavy-weight baking sheet and bake in broiler for 10-12 minutes turning once so they are browned on both sides. In a sauce pan, pour 24-ounces of the Seasoned Tomato Sauce and heat while the meatballs are in the broiler. Add meatballs and the remaining Seasoned Tomato Sauce. Simmer over low heat until cooked through – about 20 minutes.
