Ingredients: 8 ounces spaghetti 1 1/2 slices whole-wheat bread, torn into small pieces 4 ounces ground turkey breast 4 ounces low-fat turkey sausage, casings removed 2 tablespoons minced onions 2 teaspoons minced garlic 1/2 teaspoon dried basil 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano ground red pepper 1 egg white, lightly beaten 1/2 cup defatted chicken broth 1 small onion, finely chopped 2 sweet red peppers, finely chopped 4 large tomatoes, seeded and diced 1/4 cup tomato sauce Directions: In a large pot of boiling water, cook the spaghetti according to the package directions. Meanwhile, place the bread in a food processor or blender and process with on/off turns to make fine crumbs. Crumble the turkey breast and turkey sausage into the food processor. Add the minced onions, garlic, basil, oregano and ground red pepper and process briefly. Add the egg white and process with on/off turns until well-mixed. Shape the mixture into 1" balls. Coat a Dutch oven or large no-stick skillet with no-stick spray. Place over medium heat, add the meatballs and brown on all sides. Remove to a platter and set aside. Add the broth to the pan and scrape up the cooked-on bits of meat with a wooden spoon. Add the chopped onions and sweet red peppers. Saute, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes, or until tender. Add the tomatoes and tomato sauce. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent scorching. Add the meatballs and cook for 10 minutes more. Drain the pasta and serve with the meatballs and sauce. Photo and Recipe Courtesy of
