Marinara Turkey Meatballs

I found this recipe in Taste of Home's Light and Tasty magazine. It was pretty easy to do and very tasty. You might want to add salt to the meatballs. I prefer more salt rather than less, but it's not necessary.

Very Yummy! Moist and a good flavor. Even my husband like them.
I found this looking for dairy & egg free meatball options for my daughter (allergies). As long as you choose your breadcrumbs correctly, this covers it.
I followed all ingredients to the tee. Only thing different was that I baked them in the oven at 350 for about 12 minutes (until 165). I am too nervous to broil anything. Finished them off in the sauce.

Wow, what tasty meatballs! I prefer them with ground turkey! The only thing I did different was to adjust the ingredient amounts, because all I had was 16 oz (1lb) of turkey. I also used green onion instead of a chopped onion. Other than that, exactly the same. Thank you so much for the great recipe. This was a delicious Sunday night dinner.
