Creamy Parmesan Pasta With " Fowl Balls" (Ha Ha!)

"Oh,Boy! Is this good! (at least WE thought so...)From Cooking Light - 2000. I did make a few changes - you may want to too, who knows? I used a pound of turkey breast, didn't use fresh bread crumbs - about a half a cup of dry, doubled the sauce, and I used chicken broth in place of the wine.I also threw the meatballs in the sauce after I had made that, to cook them a bit more.Very good! Try it! (cooking times are approximate)"

  1. I am sorry it took me so long to make this because we enjoyed it very much. I added some green onion to the meatballs as well as the sauce and some crushed red pepper flakes. I served this over fettuccini pasta and it was very good. This was made for MEP.
  2. We thought so too! Very good, that is! I used ground chicken, but otherwise as directed for an excellent supper. I doubled the sauce as suggested, but next time I will double that again, we do like plenty of sauce. (I used the wine). I also slightly sauteed the chopped onion before adding it to the meatballs, and, as MEP did, allowed the meatballs to warm in the sauce. Excellent! A keeper! Made in fond remembrance of HEP MEP
