Number of Servings: 4


    2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    2 cups low-fat salt-free marinara
    One 15 ounce can low-sodium chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    Crushed red pepper flakes to taste
    1-1/3 pound package ground lean turkey
    ½ pound broccoli rabe, cut into bite size pieces
    2 tablespoons grated pecorino romano


1. Heat a large pot over high heat with chicken broth, marinara sauce, beans and crushed red pepper flakes until mixture comes to a simmer.

2. While mixture comes to a simmer, season ground turkey with Nu-Salt and pepper flakes. Roll turkey into about 40 meatballs.

3. Next, stir broccoli rabe into the broth and bring to a simmer. Add meatballs to the broth, cover pan with lid and lightly poach the meatballs until just cooked through, stirring occasionally for about 6 minutes. The broth should barely simmer. Check soup for seasoning.

4. Ladle into 4 large bowls and top with pecorino. Although no actual salt is called for in this recipe, please add it as you see fit.
