Makes 30 meatballs (6 to 8 servings)

We adapted and scaled down this recipe from Barbara Jean's Cookbook by Barbara Jean Barta, owner of the Barbara Jean's restaurant chain. Make a large batch of these, and freeze them in meal-size portions to cook during the week.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine sausage, ground turkey, and next 8 ingredients in a large bowl until well blended.

Step 2

Gently shape meat mixture into 30 (1 1/2-inch) balls.

Step 3

Bring Marinara Sauce to a boil in a Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring occasionally; reduce heat, and simmer. Add 10 meatballs, and cook 6 to 8 minutes or until meatballs are done. Remove meatballs from sauce, and keep warm; repeat procedure with remaining meatballs.

Step 4

Return all cooked meatballs to sauce, reduce heat to low, and cook 10 more minutes. Serve over hot cooked spaghetti, and, if desired, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
