Serves 4 (serving size: about 1 1/4 cups)

Refrigerated pasta and links of sweet Italian sausage provide a quick start to Spaghetti with Turkey Meatballs. This kid-friendly meal is ready in 20 minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook the pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain.

Step 2

Remove casing from sausages. Shape sausages into 12 (1-inch) balls. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add meatballs to pan; cook 7 minutes, browning on all sides. Remove the meatballs from pan. Add onions, red pepper, and garlic to pan; sauté for 2 minutes. Return meatballs and add marinara sauce to pan, and bring to a simmer over medium heat, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 5 minutes or until meatballs are done. Add pasta to sauce mixture; toss well. Sprinkle with cheese and basil.
