NATHALIE’S TURKEY MEATBALLS

Ingredients for meatballs:

  • 2 pounds ground turkey breast

  • ½ container (~7.25 ounces) mirepoix mix

  • Herbs  

Ingredients for marinara sauce:

  • 1 can (28 ounce) TJ’s Tuscana marinara 

  • 1 can (14.5 ounce) diced tomatoes 

  • 1 can (15 ounce) tomato sauce

  • Other half of mirepoix (~7.25 ounces)

  • 10 ounces sliced Crimini mushrooms 

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  • Mix meatball ingredients together in a bowl and make into 9-10 meatballs (using something like an ice cream scooper can help with uniform sizing).

  • Brown in skillet – don’t cook all the way thru, just brown the outsides.

  • Then transfer to a baking dish.

  • Use the same skillet to sauté the veggies for the marinara sauce and once browned, add the 3 cans of tomato variations.

  • Heat for a few minutes and then pour over the meatballs in the baking dish.

  • Bake covered for 45 minutes.

Serve over greens or by themselves with a scoop or two of marinara on top.
