Since the hubby is gone yet again for another several weeks of training (sigh), I haven’t been cooking much. But I did want to share this amazing recipe (slightly adapted) that has become one of our all-time dinner favorites. You should really give it a try!
Turkey Meatball Sandwiches
1 lb ground turkey
½ cup finely grated parmesan
1 Tbs dried oregano
1 tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
3 cups tomato sauce
1 cup freshly grated mozzarella cheese
Fresh basil, julienned
2 cloves of garlic, peeled
Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a simmer. Mix the turkey, egg, parmesan, oregano, salt, and red pepper in a medium bowl. Roll into medium-sized meatballs and set aside.
Place the meatballs in the water until they are just cooked through, and float to the top of the water. Remove with a strainer and reserve.
Use the saucepan to heat the tomato sauce, add the meatballs and simmer on low until they are warmed through.
Split the ciabatta rolls, drizzle with olive oil, and toast until golden. Rub the toast with a clove of raw garlic.
Fill the rolls with the meatballs, and sprinkle with shredded mozzarella and fresh basil.
Once the Mr gets home, we’ll be enjoying this hearty meal again for sure. I am forever grateful to Heather Christo Cooks for this weeknight staple! xo
