Turkey Meatballs

Turkey Meatballs

1 shallot, grated
1 clove garlic, minced
1 egg
2 TBSP dried parsley flakes
2 TBSP romano cheese, freshly grated
2 TBSP bread crumbs
1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
8 oz. ground turkey

Add the shallot, garlic, egg, parsley, cheese, bread crumbs and pepper tp a bowl and blend. Mix in the turkey. Shape into meatballs. Heat oil in a large heavy frying pan over medium heat. Transfer meatballs to pan and brown on all sides. Pour off excess oil and add tomato-based sauce to pan. Return meatballs to pan. Turn heat to medium-low and simmer until sauce thickens, about 20 minutes. Serve over pasta.

Notes: Having been only able to obtain ground turkey in too large an amount for just the burger recipe, and being in the mood for pasta, I decided to attempt something along these lines to be both healthier and tasty. And it worked.

This was terrific... I'll definitely be making them again.
