Meals update

The turkey meatballs were supposed to make 4 servings but ended up making 16 meatballs (we each ate 2) leaving a bunch leftover. They were really tasty though and easy to make. It was a Rachel Ray recipe that I modified...

Florentine meatballs:

2 lbs ground turkey breast
1 pkg (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach
1 egg
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup milk
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Thaw spinach and wring dry in a towel. Mix all ingredients and season with salt and pepper. Form into 16 meatballs on a cookie sheet or glass pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 30-35 min. Serve with white sauce and egg noodles.

White Sauce:

1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. butter
3 tbsp. flour
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup milk
4 oz. grated mozzarella cheese
ground nutmeg

Cook onion until limp in olive oil and butter. Whisk in flour and cook for 2 min. Mix in milk and broth and bring to boil. When sauce begins to thicken (5 min) add in the mozzarella, and season with nutmeg, salt, pepper. Drizzle sauce over meatballs and noodles.
