"The spicy kick and multiple herbs in this sauce lend layers of flavor without fat. The carrot, onion and Parmesan add volume and moisture. Copyright 2006, Ellie Krieger, All rights reserved Food Network Show: Healthy Appetite with Ellie Krieger"

"Fantastic! And it's healthy, too :)My family does not care for anything made with ground turkey but they loved this. And the delicious sauce makes whole wheat pasta palatable. Made the recipe as stated but tripled the meatballs so I'd have some leftover, and was glad I did. Used a little less than 1 dried thyme. Formed the meatballs a little smaller and they were cooked through after 10 minutes under the broiler. Froze some, added some to plain marinara, and used some with the sauce in this recipe which I loved!! In the sauce, used a T of dried basil and a little less that a t of dried oregano. Assumed the minced adobo seasoning meant minced chipotles in adobo sauce, which was wonderful with the fire roasted crushed tomatoes, I used Muir Glen. The sauce is even better the next day, I'd advise making ahead if at all possible. Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"DELICIOUS MEATBALLS! Even using the dried herbs I had - these are by far the best meatballs I've ever tasted...we'll see how my kids like them when they wake up. I didn't have the right ingredients on hand for the sauce, so I can't speak for it."
"MEATBALLS ONLY: I didn't make the pasta sauce. They are wonderful, don't omit the carrots, they add a nice flavor. Hubby said they were great, couldn't even tell they were made with ground turkey. I broiled mine almost twice as long because I prefer them to have a nice brown color, they were still very moist and tender."
"This came out excellent. Even hubby loved it. I omitted onions (he hates them), used regular canned tomatoes (pureed, our preference), and only had dried basil, rosemary, and oregano, but even so it came out fantastic! I am watching carbs so ate my share over spaghetti squash, extremely satisfying. Simple to execute, 50 minutes seems about right. A new standby, thank you so much!"
