Turkey Meatballs

Well aren't I so fancy?!  Making my own meatballs and stuff :)  This was really good and so healthy!!  Instead of noodles I just made up spaghetti squash and just threw some broccoli and meatballs on top - so good!
6 servings: 5 meatballs – 1 red, ½ yellow

20 oz 93% lean ground turkey
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp paprika
1 large egg
3/4 cup quick oats
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T fresh parsley chopped
2 T tomato sauce, no sugar added
1 Large Spaghetti Squash

Preheat oven to 400.  Cover a large pan with parchment paper, set aside.

In large bowl, combine all ingredients by hand and mix well.

Roll into 30 1-inch balls. Place on baking sheet.  Bake for 15-20 minutes, until cooked through.

Cook spaghetti squash – heat a pot of water large enough to hold the whole squash.  When water is boiling, drop the squash and cook for 20-30 minutes.  When a fork goes easily in, it’s done.  OR cut squash in half lengthwise, remove seeds.  Place squash cut side up in microwave dish with ¼ cup water.  Cover with plastic wrap and cook on high for 10-12 minutes.  Let stand covered for 5 minutes and “comb out strands”

Serve this over spaghetti squash and broccoli and top it with Feta cheese.
