    Yields about 32 meatballs (serving sizes may vary due to size of meatballs)

    1 pound lean ground turkey breast
    1/2 cup breadcrumbs
    Small handful fresh basil, finely chopped, plus more for garnish
    2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
    1/2 tablespoon dried marjoram or Italian seasoning
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon sea salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    1 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese (divided)
    1 egg
    1-1/4 cups marinara sauce (divided)


To keep this dish even healthier, we served our meatballs over fresh zucchini noodles. You can make zucchini noodles easily by using a spiralizer purchased from a cooking store or online.



Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, reserving 1 cup marinara sauce and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.
Mix well. Use a small cookie scoop or a spoon to portion out the mixture and place on the baking sheet. Roll each portion into balls. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the meatballs are completely cooked.
Place the meatballs on a serving platter and spoon the remaining marinara sauce over top. Garnish with remaining Parmesan and fresh basil, if desired.
