I used to get the magazine Cooking Light, about ten years ago I found this delicious recipe for turkey meatballs with marinara sauce in the magazine.  I have made it for others and they didn’t even know it was ground turkey and not ground hamburger.  If you are looking for a healthier way to eat your meatballs then you need to try this one out.
