A simple twist on one of America's most classic dishes, turkey meatballs require very little preparation and serve as the ideal accompaniment to any type of pasta.

This particular recipe takes under a half hour to cook and calls for items many home-makers already have in the kitchen, from bread crumbs to onions to olive oil.

Throw in whatever sauce you'd like and treat your family to a healthy meal that goes down easy, tastes great and is easy on the calories.
