Last night was a rainy one here in Orlando. I don’t know what it is about rainy weather, but it seems to always call for comfort food! To me, Italian = ultimate comfort food. I decided to make classic spaghetti and meatballs, using my recipe for Turkey Meatballs to lighten it up.
Servings: 4 (3 meatballs each)
1.3 lbs. ground turkey meat
1 tablespoon capers
1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon of:
red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, add all of the above ingredients.
Use your hand to combine all the ingredients with the turkey.
Working with approximately 2 oz. portions, roll the meat in between your hands until you form a perfect ball. Lay them on a nonstick cookie sheet, and pop them in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
Serve on top of whole wheat spaghetti with your favorite marinara sauce.
Other meals of the day…
Fage 0% Greek Yogurt topped with fresh strawberries.
After taking a week off from BodyPump, I was definitely ready to get back to lifting weights. I went to the gym ahead of the scheduled class time so I could get in some cardio beforehand. I did 25 minutes on the elliptical before Pumping it up 🙂 .
