Print  Friendly and PDF
This is my idea of comfort food. I can have turkey meatballs everyday and not get tired at all. I love meatballs and you will be seeing plenty of versions in the future posts.

  • 1 1/2 pound hot Italian turkey sausage
  • Angel hair Pasta - As required
  • 1 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 2 cups fresh breadcrumbs (I grind 3-4 stale bread slices to make this)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • salt
  • 1/2 - 1 tbsp pepper
  • 1/2 - 1 cup raisins
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 26-oz jar of pasta sauce, any brand
  • In a large bowl mix ground turkey, sausage, breadcrumbs, egg, cheese,parsley, crushed red pepper, raisins, garlic,
  • onion,salt and pepper. Mix, but do not overmix. Shape them into lemon sized meatballs and set aside.
  • In a pan, add the olive oil and shallow cook the meatballs in batches until its golden on the outside.
  • Drain on paper-lined plate.
  • In a large pan add the pasta sauce, drop the meatballs and cook for about 20minutes on low flame until its thoroughly cooked.
  • Spoon the sauce and meatballs on the top of Spaghetti and serve hot.
    Makes ~24 meatballs.


    Tip: Part of this can be frozen for later.
