Meatball Parmesan

This meatball parmesan recipe makes a one heck of a large meatball.  Yet it is still just four servings.   Each serving is 2 slices or I made four large meatballs.   These were covered in melted cheese which makes everything, extra GOOD!   I think Ted and I have another new favorite! Each serving is 274 calories, very nice!

Serves 4

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1/3 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 3 tbsp grated pecorino romano cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 2 tsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp fresh minced parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup Delallo Pomodoro Fresco Marinara
  • 1 oz (1/4 cup) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • grated parmesan, optional for topping

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a medium bowl combine turkey, breadcrumbs, pecorino, egg, garlic, tomato paste, parsley and salt and gently mix to combine. Form into an oval loaf using your hands, slightly flattened at the top on a nonstick baking sheet. Bake uncovered 45 to 50 minutes, remove from oven, top with marinara and cheese and bake 3 to 5 minutes until the sauce is hot and the cheese is melted.
  3. Slice in 8 equal pieces. Serve with more warmed sauce on the side if desired.
