Tosca Reno’s Turkey Meatballs

I’m not much of a meatball girl, but these are yummy. Also it was a lot of fun to make them with Logan. The side dishes are broccoli and quinoa mixed with onions and orange bell peppers.

  2. David has been looking for a recipe he can make for homemade meatballs. I’ll have to show him this one.

  3. Thank you for this recipe. With rice pasta and marinara sauce this tasted as good as any restaurant could match.
