Turkey Florentine Meatballs
This is the recipe that single-handedly woo'ed a skeptical David into the turkey loving man he is today. ha!
1 1/3 pound ground turkey
1 box frozen spinach (thawed)
3 garlic cloves (minced)
1 medium yellow onion (diced)
1 large egg
1/4 cup milk
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup parmesan cheese (grated)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wring out excess water from spinach. Place all ingredients (except EVOO) into a large mixing bowl. Mix ingredients well-- the best way is with your hands! Form into however many balls you want (I usually get around 16) and place on a nonstick baking sheet (or cover a regular baking sheet with parchment paper or foil). Drizzle with EVOO. Roast for 20 minutes. That's it! (Makes 4-5 servings)
These taste great with any kind of sauce, but this is our favorite, simple version.
Olive Oil, Garlic and Crushed Red Pepper Pasta
Pour just enough EVOO in a skillet set over medium-low heat to lightly cover the amount of pasta you are eating. Once warm, add a clove or two of minced fresh garlic. Let cook about 30 seconds, then sprinkle in crushed red pepper flakes to taste (we probably use 1-2 tsp). Cook for another 30ish seconds, until warm and pour over pasta.
