This Skinny Spaghetti and Meatballs (Yes Skinny!) is an amazing pasta recipe that can bring out flavors in your meals that no other element can. One of my favorites that can change the way you make quick meals today is nice smooth spaghetti and meatballs. Not just any combination works for me. There’s something great about a lighter option. That’s right. I have found a great way to make this recipe a lot healthier, especially if you’re looking to not only cut out calories but to create something impressionable for a lifetime.
This Skinny Spaghetti and Meatballs is going to be skinny because the meatballs are not going to be all meat, and they are going to use turkey over beef. I will also be adding breadcrumbs and focusing on building them in a different manner. As for pasta, try to go with a gluten-free noodle, and look for options that will help you build this better.
Guilt-Free Skinny Spaghetti and Meatballs
- 1 pound ground turkey (minced turkey) - lean
- 2 cups green pepper (green capsicum) - minced, about 15 mini peppers
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ cup Parmesan cheese - freshly grated
- ¾ cup breadcrumbs - Italian seasoned whole-wheat breadcrumbs
- ½ teaspoon salt - plus extra salt and pepper
- 35 ounces Neapolitan Sauce or Pasta sauce Southern Hemisphere (Tomato Sauce in North America) - super smooth, my preference
- 16 ounces spaghetti - uncooked
- Turn your oven on and get it to 350°F. Prepare the peppers first, and beat eggs together while adding parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. You want to have a thick mess here, and slowly add your turkey and peppers. You want to make sure that these all come together or won’t work.
- Once you mix everything well enough, you will want to roll meatballs and make sure that they are spread out onto a baking sheet. Add salt and pepper, and then bake them for 20 minutes in the oven. Don’t make these too big. You will not get the right consistency.
- While that is going, you’ll want to boil water and then add your spaghetti to it. You’ll cook and drain the noodles, and that’s it for that.
- As for combining the mix, you’ll want to combine the sauce and your noodles and add a little cheese, then add the meatballs too, and there you have it. A better version, a simple version, a dynamic version of spaghetti and meatballs. Low ingredient list, fast processing with the meatballs, and all the taste you’re going to adore. Test it out, mix it up, and see how you can make this your own.
