Very good and very easy meatballs in a delicious mushroom-tomato sauce. The entire family will love this meal - or take it to the office potluck.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all the meatball ingredients in a bowl and mix gently using your (clean) hands so that everything is evenly distributed. Shape mixture into 1-inch meatballs. Set aside.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, saute mushrooms in olive oil for 5 minutes. Add onion and garlic and cook until softened, 2-3 minutes longer. Add pureed tomatoes, broth or water, herbs and seasoning and bring to boil. Drop in meatballs and cook for 30 minutes, or until meatballs are cooked through and sauce has thickened (do not stir meatballs in sauce for first 5 minutes so that they can firm up). Remove bay leaf.
  3. Serve over brown rice or egg noodles or pasta, with extra parmesan cheese.
  4. Note: This can also be placed in a casserole dish, rice on bottom, meatballs and sauce on top, and reheated later on.

A delicious recipe for turkey meatballs. Half a recipe made enough meatballs for 4 people. They were delicious and the instructions were well written. I did not make the sauce this time and substituted a prepared canned sauce. Next time I will try making the sauce as well and maybe increasing it a bit. The meatballs were served over freshly cooked gluten free spaghetti with a salad on the side for a delicious meal. Thanks Evelyn for another great recipe.

Evelyn thanks for your recipe!
We all love meatballs and you recipe is really very tasty! As usual one of the most important things is to use good quality herbs and spices.
We enjoyed it with bulgur, which is perfect the rich tasty sauce.

The sauce is so time I will make 1 1/2 x the amount. The meatballs are a bit bland...I'll rethink what to do to add a bit of extra pep....but overall a delicious and easy to make dish.
