cost per recipe: $6.88

  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 pound 85% lean ground turkey
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) Prego®+ Hidden Super Veggies Traditional Italian Sauce or No Sugar Added Traditional Italian Sauce


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 400°F.  While the oven is heating, mix the egg, bread crumbs, onion powder, garlic powder, Parmesan and water in a large bowl.  Add the turkey and mix just until combined (over-mixing will make the meatballs tough).  Season with salt and pepper.

  • Step 2

    Spray a rimmed baking sheet with vegetable cooking spray.  Firmly shape the turkey mixture into 12 (2-inch) meatballs (use about 1/4 cup mixture for each meatball).  Place the meatballs onto the baking sheet.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 20 minutes or until the meatballs are done.

  • Step 4

    While the meatballs are baking, heat the sauce in a 3-quart saucepan over low heat until hot.  When the meatballs are done, add to the sauce and stir to coat.
