NATHALIE’S TURKEY MEATBALLS
Ingredients for meatballs:
2 pounds ground turkey breast
½ container (~7.25 ounces) mirepoix mix
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
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.
