Turkey Meatballs with Loaded Garden Vegetable Pasta Sauce

You ask and you shall receive. These are by far the easiest turkey meatballs I have ever made.


Grocery List

Turkey Meatballs

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh ground black better
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1 small onion, thinly diced

Vegetable Pasta Sauce

How to make it

  1. Chop all your ingredients for both the pasta sauce and the meatballs.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients for the meatballs.
  3. Incorporate with your hands (the best kitchen tool) the meatballs into the shape of golf balls
  4. In a cast iron skillet, heat some oil olive. Once hot, start searing your meatballs on each size.
  5. When those are cooking, get started on your sauce. Sauté garlic and onions in your saucepan. Once caramelized add your carrots, mushrooms, red bell pepper, zucchini.
  6. Cook down for 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Once cooked down add the pussata.
  7. Once the meatballs are cooked; add them to your pasta sauce. Let them cook in the sauce for 10 minutes.
  8. Serve your meatballs on top of some zucchini noodles or your favourite grain-free pasta.
