Introduction

This is a pretty quick dinner to fix, great for a chilly winter's evening! If you can't get spinach, kale or swiss chard would work equally well.

To make this lower in fat, choose NO YOLKS egg noodles, or another low-fat pasta alternative.

Ingredients

    1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
    1 pound 93% lean ground turkey
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. nutmeg
    1/2 tsp. black pepper
    1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
    4 cups uncooked egg noodles
    3 cups spinach, chopped
    4 c. chicken broth (low-sodium is best)
    1.5 c. nonfat milk
    1 tbsp. white flour

Directions

1. Mix together pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, salt, and 1/2 tsp. of the black pepper.
2. Add the turkey burger and 1 c. of the chopped spinach to the spice mix. Mix gently with hands, then work into 24-30 small meatballs.
3. Heat the olive oil in a deep frying pan. Add the meatballs, cooking until browned (3-5 min.) Remove w/slotted spoon to a plate.
4. To the same pan, add the chicken broth, bringing to a boil. Add the noodles, cooking until almost tender (5 min.) Reduce heat to medium, then add milk.
5. Once the mixture has come to a gentle boil, add back the meatballs. Make a slurry with the flour and 2-3 tbsp. of warm water, adding to the pan and stirring-in quickly to thicken.
6. Add remaining 1 1/2 tsp. of black pepper to taste, and stir-in the remaining chopped spinach, cooking just until wilted.

Makes 6 servings of about 1 cup each. ENJOY!
