We make this with spaghetti squash and cover the squash in marinara!


2 small onions, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 large eggs
1/2 cup dried bread crumbs
6 tablespoons ketchup
1/2 cup fresh chopped parsley OR 3 tablespoons dried parsley
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 pounds ground turkey (I use 2 Jenny-O packs, its 2.5 lbs but whatever, its close enough)
6 tablespoons olive oil
1 jar marinara sauce


1. Add the onion, garlic, egg, bread crumbs, ketchup, parsley, Parmesan, salt and pepper to a large bowl and blend. Mix in the turkey. Shape the turkey mixture into meatballs (about 1 1/2 inch diameter) Place on a large plate or baking sheet.
2. Heat the oil in a heavy large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and saute until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes.
3. Transfer the meatballs to a plate and dump out the oil. Add the marinara sauce and return all the meatballs to the pan. Turn the heat to medium-low and simmer until the sauce thickens slightly and the flavors blend, 15 to 20 minutes. Season the sauce, to taste, with salt and pepper.
