Turkey Meatballs, Spaghetti Squash
Spaghetti squash halved, cooked and emptied
1 tsp organic extra virgin olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 lb extra-lean ground turkey
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh oregano
1/2 cup whole-grain bread crumbs (I dry out my own with Ezekiel 4:9 bread and freeze it)
1 Tbsp organic tomato paste
1 egg or 1/4 cup egg substitute
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until soft but not browned, three to five minutes.
In a large bowl, place turkey, onion-garlic mixture, basil, oragano, breadcrumbs, tomato paste, egg, salt and pepper. Using your hands or a large spoon, gently mix together until combined.

Meanwhile, cook spaghetti squash accroding to directions. Top with an organic or lower sugar sauce (or you can make your own). I add one small organic Garden Vegetable baby food and one small organic Sweet Potato or Carrot baby food to the sauce. Add meatballs and serve immediately.
