This is another favorite of mine. I just had the pleasure of sampling Costco’s pesto yesterday, which would be really yummy in this recipe.
Bon Appétit – March 1999
2 cups purchased chunky tomato pasta sauce
1/2 pound ground turkey
3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs made from crustless Italian bread
2 3/4 tablespoons purchased pesto
1 egg white
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 ounces spaghetti or 1 medium spagetti squash
Spread 1 cup pasta sauce over bottom of heavy medium skillet. Mix turkey, breadcrumbs, pesto, egg white and salt in medium bowl. Using moistened hands, form mixture into 8 meatballs. Place meatballs in single layer in sauce. Spoon remaining sauce over. Bring to simmer. Cover; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until meatballs are cooked through, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite. Drain pasta; divide between bowls. Top with meatballs and sauce.
