Who doesn't love a good meatball? Let's face it, they're delicious. Since it's hard not to eat way to many of them, I like to make a turkey version, which helps keep the calories in check. My favorite way to enjoy these turkey meatballs are to add them to my Skinny Italian Vegetable Soup. It's such an awesome addition. 

Since these meatballs are baked, they are even easier to put together than you can imagine. Line them up on a tray and pop them in the oven for less than 20 minutes. have dinner.

I like using a large, rimmed baking sheet to mix all my meatball ingredients, but you can use a bowl if you like. 

Tip: If you want to make sure the flavor is right for you and your family, after you mix all the ingredients together, throw a small sample in a frying pan with some cooking spray so you can taste the seasoning before forming into meatballs.
