What You'll Need:

1 1/4 pounds ground turkey breast

3/4 cup plain bread crumbs

1 (1-ounce) package dry ranch dressing

1/4 cup water

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

4 (1-ounce) mozzarella sticks, cut into 20 cubes

1 (26-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce

1/4 cup shredded carrots

1/4 cup thin celery slices

1 pound spaghetti, cooked according to package directions (keep warm)

 

What To Do:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

2. In a large bowl, combine turkey, bread crumbs, dry ranch dressing, water, egg, garlic powder, and black pepper; mix well. Divide mixture into 20 meatballs, then form each meatball around a mozzarella cube, making sure to cover cheese completely. Place on prepared baking sheet.

Add meatballs; stir until evenly coated. Place warm pasta on a large serving platter and place sauce and meatballs on top. Serve immediately.
