Turkey and Spinach Meatballs
I was really in the mood for spaghetti and meatballs for dinner tonight. I saw in an old Cooking Light issue when I was cleaning today a recipe for Turkey Ricotta meatballs which I think I made a while ago but I didn't have ricotta so I changed it around a bit to suit my tastes and what I had on hand. I didn't really measure but here are approximates.
1.25 lean ground turkey
1/2 cup fresh spinach, chopped finely
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped finely
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl until well-mixed. Form into balls (I made 16 which were on the large side). Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes. These freeze well too if you don't think you'll be eating them any time soon.
