Perfect Turkey Meatballs Recipe @pinch

Full of flavor, these turkey meatballs are perfect. If you didn't know, you'd never guess they're made healthier with ground turkey. Super versatile, we served the meatballs with pasta sauce and over spaghetti squash for a lower carb option. Both were delicious! These could even be eaten alone, on a sub, or tossed in a simple tomato sauce. When I cut back the amount of red meat my family ate, meatballs were one of the first recipes I changed. It took some trial and error until I came up with this delicious recipe.
