DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Place a pot of water on to boil for spaghetti. When it comes to a boil, salt the water and add pasta to cook to al dente.
  • Combine ground turkey with egg in a mixing bowl.
  • Place whole grain bread in food processor and pulse into crumbs. Add crumbs to meat mixture.
  • Add salt, pepper, garlic, five-spice powder, 3 chopped scallions, cilantro, and 2 tablespoons soy sauce to meat mixture.
  • Form 1 1/2-inch balls and place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Roast 15 minutes, turning halfway, if the meatballs are over browning on the bottoms.
  • When the meatballs are close to done and the pasta is in, spray a large skillet with cooking spray and place over high heat.
  • Add the snow peas, red pepper, remaining cut scallions, ginger and garlic, stir-fry 2 minutes.
  • Add spinach and wilt, 1 minute.
  • Drain the pasta and add to the vegetables.
  • Add the remaining soy sauce, about 1/3 cup, and the sesame oil.
  • Toss to combine so pasta can soak up sauce, about 1 minute.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and top with lots of meatballs.
