My daughter loves meatballs! She has enjoyed them since she was a toddler so I’m always looking for a great meatball recipe so that we aren’t eating the same thing day in and day out. I also prefer to cook with leaner meats like turkey or lean ground beef. This is a very easy recipe for a healthier meatball. Once the meatballs are made you can do just about anything with them such as put them in spaghetti, eat as an appetizer, or if you like my daughters just eat meatballs for dinner!Jump to Recipe
Healthy Italian Meatball Recipe
If you want to cut down on the sugar you can choose a different spaghetti sauce. This is my favorite meatball recipe because I love the taste of the Italian seasoned meat. It adds a delicious taste instead of your standard hamburger. There is also a great recipe when you are trying to create healthy alternatives. If you just can’t get away without adding a little bit of carb to your dinner or lunch you can always add whole grain pasta to your meal. Eden Kamut Spiral Pasta is my favorite!
