Quick Parmesan Meatballs
Serve in a sub sandwich or over pasta

Serves 5

• 1.32 pounds ground turkey breast
• 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
• 1/4 cup grated Parmesan Romano cheese
• 1/4 cup curly parsley, finely chopped
• 1 egg
• 1 large clove garlic, minced
• 1 teaspoon kosher salt
• 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

• 1 pound 7.8 ounce jar tomato basil marinara sauce (for this recipe, we used Light Ragu - No Sugar Added)
• 1/3 cup grated Parmesan Romano cheese
• 1/4 cup chopped basil leaves

Mix meatball mixture thoroughly. Form into one inch meatballs.

Spray a nonstick medium saute pan with olive oil. Heat to medium high. Brown meatballs on all sides. Meatballs do not need to be cooked through at this point.

Bring tomato sauce to a simmer. Add the meatballs to the sauce and cook about 20 minutes. Serve with pasta, as an appetizer or on a submarine roll for a meatball sub. Top with cheese and basil leaves.
