Parmesan-Turkey Meatballs

This recipe is one of the BEST I've tasted. Thanks Maggie!!

Parmesan-Turkey Meatballs (or meatloaf!)

1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1 1/4 pounds ground turkey
1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup low-fat milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 Tablespoons ketchup
2 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
(sometimes I shake a little worcestershire sauce to spice things up a bit)
1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce (I think I used Newman's or Classico 4 cheese marinara sauce, or something like that)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray aluminum cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

In medium bowl, combine onion, turkey, bread crumbs, milk, egg, ketchup, cheese, garlic, basil, rosemary, and pepper. Blend well.

Form meatballs to desired size, and put on cookie sheet. Bake until browned and cooked through (it always seems to be different--20-30 minutes or so?)

If you do want to make meatloaf, put into loaf pan instead, and bake until browned and cooked through, 50-60 minutes.

After cooled a bit, add the pasta sauce and stir gently. ENJOY!
