Turkey Meatballs

Lean ground turkey is a great way to cut down calories in your favorite recipes that call for ground beef. I decided to come up with a meatball recipe that used ground turkey and created this recipe that was very flavorful and satisfying. Serve it with your favorite pasta sauce or you can use it in your favorite stroganoff recipe.

Turkey Meatballs
Makes 16 meatballs

1 pound extra lean ground turkey
4 clove garlic cloves, crushed
1/3 cup reduced-fat parmesan cheese
1/2 cup fat-free milk
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg
2 tsp dried basil
2 tsp dried parsley

Combine all ingredients. Using a tablespoon, form into 30 balls. Spray a skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Brown meatballs on all sides until cooked through and browned. Add to your favorite pasta sauce in a large saucepan, cover and cook over low heat for 40 minutes.

(For those of you counting points, each meatball is 2 points.)
