Watching your weight doesn't have to mean giving up your favorite dishes. Made with mostly turkey, these meatballs are delicious, and you'll never miss the fat.

Serves 6


1/4 pound spicy Italian sausage, casings removed

1 pound ground turkey

1 cup dried Italian breadcrumbs

1 cup finely chopped onion

1 cup egg substitute*

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon minced garlic

2 teaspoons oregano or Italian seasoning

2 (25.5-ounce) jars low-sodium pasta sauce*

1 pound fresh or dried spaghetti

* Note: For testing purposes only, we used Egg Beaters egg substitute and Prego Heart Smart Traditional Pasta Sauce. 


Combine first 8 ingredients in a large bowl and gently mix with hands to combine. Shape mixture into 30 golf ball size meatballs and place in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

Heat pasta sauce just until boiling; pour over meatballs, cover with foil, and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 40 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.

Meanwhile, cook spaghetti according to package directions and keep warm. Serve meatballs and sauce over pasta.
