Healthy Cooking- Spaghetti and Meatballs

Over the past 3 weeks I have been focusing on weight loss and healthy cooking.  Over the next couple of weeks here on Friend’s Pantry I’m going to post some ideas and recipes that you can make and enjoy the food that you do without the extra fat and calories.

We all love spaghetti and meatballs.  Here’s a great idea to enjoy and cut the fat of the meatballs.

Turkey, Ground – Use the 93% lean
Egg Whites- 2 Eggs
Quaker Oats- 1/2 cup dry of the quick 1 minute
Onions- You can use either dehydrated flakes (1 tbsp) or very finally chopped fresh onions (2-3 tbsp)
Oregano- 1/2 tbsp
Garlic power- 1/2 tbsp
Milk, nonfat- 1/4 cup

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

In a bowl mix egg whites, oats, milk until well mixed.  Add in the parsley, onions, oregano, and garlic powder.  Mix well.

Add turkey burger to the mix and mix well again.

Take a baking sheet and spay with cooking spray.  Make 32 meatballs.

Bake for 7-10 minutes depending on your oven, or until no longer pink inside.

Serve with whole wheat spaghetti and either diced tomatoes or a healthy spaghetti sauce.

A serving is 8 meatballs for 220 calories and 8.9 grams of fat.
