Filled with antioxidant-rich spinach and smothered in a homemade pasta sauce, there’s no denying it, you’re gonna want these balls in your mouth. Conveniently, you can find the recipe for that sauce here. The rotini was a gluten-free rice pasta but these were good enough to eat as is, and we did.
Spinach Turkey Meatballs
I eyeball everything these days cause I love to live dangerously. Adjust to your tastes.
1 lb lean ground turkey
a couple handfuls of fresh chopped spinach
1 rounded tsp Italian seasoning
two cloves garlic
1/4 parmesan cheese, extra for garnishing
an egg, beaten
salt and pepper
Combine ingredients, mix, form the meatballs, brown them in a frying pan, finish in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes. Pour sauce around the meatballs so they soak up that deliciousness and don’t dry out. Or bake them… or cook through in the frying pan… whatever floats your boat.
