DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Line 15 1/2" by 10 1/2" jelly-roll pan with parchment paper or foil.
  • In medium bowl, with fingertips, mix turkey, bread crumbs, parsley, garlic, egg, and 1/4 cup Romano just until blended; do not overmix. Shape turkey mixture into thirty-six 1-inch meatballs; place in prepared pan.
  • Bake meatballs 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat large covered saucepot of water to boiling over high heat.
  • Add pasta and cook 2 minutes less than label directs.
  • Drain pasta; return to saucepot.
  • In 2-cup liquid measuring cup, whisk cornstarch into milk.
  • Add milk mixture and broth to pasta in saucepot; heat to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Boil 1 minute to thicken sauce slightly. Remove saucepot from heat; stir in spinach, 1/2 cup grated Romano, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add meatballs and gently toss to combine.
  • Transfer pasta mixture to 3-quart glass or ceramic baking dish; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup grated Romano. Bake 20 minutes or until hot in the center and golden brown on top.
