Recipe Ingredients for skinny meatballs

2 slices of bread, crust removed
3/4 c water
1/3 lb ground veal
1/3 lb ground pork
1/3 lb ground turkey
1/2 c grated parmesan cheese
1 large egg
1/2 small onion, finely minced
1/3 c chopped parsley
2 tbsp chopped basil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Recipe Directions for skinny meatballs

  1. Heat marinara sauce in a large, wide pot over medium heat. Cover to prevent splattering.

  2. Place bread in a medium bowl and pour water over. Let sit 10 minutes, and gently squeeze out excess liquid. Put bread in a large bowl; discard water.

  3. Add all the remaining ingredients to the bowl with the bread. Gently toss to combine, maintaining a light touch to keep air in the meatballs (don't squish the meat to much, or you'll end up with tough meatballs). Roll the meat mixture in your hands to create meatballs slightly larger than a golf ball.

  4. Remove marinara sauce from heat to prevent splattering, and gently drop the meatballs in the warm sauce. Return tomato sauce to medium-low heat, bring to a simmer and cook, covered, until meatballs have cooked through, about 30 minutes.

  5. Cook pasta according to package directions, toss with marinara sauce and top with meatballs.
