Turkey Meatballs for dinner

Tonight I created a recipe that will definitely be repeated!  Clean eating turkey meatballs!
I started with ground turkey...only 93% lean, but pretty good.  I diced 1/3 onion and 6 mini sweet peppers and sauteed them until they were soft, then combined with 1 egg white, garlic powder and 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce.  shaped into balls, put in pan with 1/2 tbsp olive oil.  cooked over medium heat with lid on, flipped then took lid off to cook off liquid.  Moved balls to side and added a can of dices tomatoes plus 1 tsp dried basil.  When almost ready I put 8 cups of fresh spinach on top to wilt.
I served the my son's 6 meatballs with whole wheat pasta & parmesan, cucumber and grape tomatoes, my daughter's with 5 meatballs brown rice and cucumber, my husbands with whole wheat pasta, meatballs, and spinach, mine was spinach and meatballs!  Lots of spinach was key.  I was so proud sitting at the table tonight watching my family eat every last bite of their "clean" meal! 
I wish I had taken a photo as it looked great and tasted delicious!  PLUS it followed the rules for my eating plan this week!


  1. Love the recipe and versatility -it is a challenge keeping all the appetites satisfied.

  2. Glad the husband ate the WW pasta :)
    Last night I made spaghetti squash with turkey bacon... that is my attempt at 'clean cooking'!!

  3. I am def. trying this out soon. I have been looking for good clean eating recipes. Thanks!!!
