spaghetti & turkey meatballs

Prep: 5min | Cooking: 30min

Complexity: 2/5


(serves 4)

  • 500g spaghetti or other pasta of choice

For the meatballs:

  • 500g ground turkey

  • 1 egg

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp white vinegar

  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs

  • 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper

  • 1 tsp paprika

  • 1 tbsp spearmint

For the sauce:

  • 600g canned chopped tomatoes

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2 tbsp chopped basil


Heat oven at 220°C.

Combine all meatball ingredients in a bowl. Shape meatballs (ca. 1 tbsp portions, makes just under 30), and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with a little olive oil and bake 15-20 min.

Meanwhile, in a wide frying pan (that will fit the meatballs later in one layer) fry the garlic in a little oil. Once aromatic, add the chopped tomatoes and 1.5 cups water. Simmer on low heat, uncovered, 15 min.

Add the basil, and season with a little salt and pepper.

Add the meatballs, and simmer another 15 min, mixing occasionally.

Boil spaghetti according to packet instructions. Serve with meatball sauce.
