We love this delicious high protein version of meatballs! It’s not your regular meatball, it’s HUGE, and baked in the oven similar to how you would make a meatloaf, then topped with marinara and melted cheese – DELICIOUS! Now made low calorie, low fat and high in protein, enjoy in confidence!
1 lb 93% lean ground turkey
1/3 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
3 tbsp grated pecorino romano cheese
1 large egg
1 clove crushed garlic
2 tsp tomato paste
1 tbsp fresh minced parsley
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup Delallo Pomodoro Fresco Marinara
1 oz (1/4 cup) shredded mozzarella cheese
Grated parmesan, optional for topping
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
In a medium bowl combine turkey, breadcrumbs, pecorino, egg, garlic, tomato paste, parsley and salt and gently mix to combine. Form into an oval loaf using your hands, slightly flattened at the top on a nonstick baking sheet. Bake uncovered 45 to 50 minutes, remove from oven, top with marinara and cheese and bake 3 to 5 minutes until the sauce is hot and the cheese is melted.
Slice in 8 equal pieces. Serve with more warmed sauce on the side if desired.
