SPAGHETTI AND CHEESY TURKEY MEATBALLS

Makes 8 Servings

Ingredients
• 1 pound ground turkey or chicken
• 3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs
• 3/4 cup grated Cabot 50% Reduced Fat Cheddar, divided
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
• 1 large egg, lightly beaten
• 1 (16-ounce) package dry spaghetti
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 3 cups Vegetable Tomato Sauce(see recipe below)
• 1 tablespoon dried oregano, crumbled


Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 350º F. Coat baking sheet with nonstick spray and set aside.

2. In large bowl, combine turkey or chicken, breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup of cheese, garlic, parsley and sage; mix together well. Stir in egg and just enough water to make mixture hold together.

3. Shape mixture into 16 balls and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, turning occasionally, or until meatballs are golden brown.

4. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti in large pot of boiling, salted water according to package directions. Drain thoroughly, return to pot and toss with olive oil (to prevent spaghetti from sticking together).

5. Add sauce and cooked meatballs; combine gently and transfer to large serving dish. Sprinkle with oregano and remaining 1/4 cup cheese.
