    Spaghetti with Turkey-Pesto Meatballs

    Recipe Introduction

    Source: Bon Appetit-3/99

    List of Ingredients

    • 2 cups purchased chunky tomato pasta sauce
    • 1/2 cup ground turkey
    • 3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs made from crustless Italian bread
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons purchased pesto
    • 1 egg white
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt


    1. Spread 1 cup pasta sauce over the bottom of heavy medium skillet. Mix turkey, breadcrumbs, pesto, egg white and salt in medium bowl. Using moistened hands, form mixture into 8 meatballs. Place meatballs in single layer in sauce. Spoon remaining sauce over. Bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until meatballs are cooked through, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes.

    2. Meanwhile, cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to the bite. Drain pasta; divide between bowls. Top with meatballs and sauce.

    3. Servings: 2
