Monday is Pasta & Meatballs!

Monday is Pasta Night in our house...we love it!  Try some Saba in this recipe to add a sweet taste to your meatballs.
  • 16 ounces Ground Turkey
  • 2 Teaspoons of Spicy Italian Roasted Garlic Blend
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 Tablespoons of Saba Aged Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 large egg (lightly beaten)
  • 1/2 Cup of Panko bread crumbs
  • 24 ounces tomato basil sauce (heated)
  • 17 ounces organic  Lasagnette (cooked according to package directions)
  • grated Parmesan cheese (if desired)


  1.  Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. In large bowl, combine turkey, Seasoning Blend, lemon rind, Olive Oil, egg, bread crumbs...Mike likes to mix using two knives...he said it makes the meatball juicier.
  3. Shape into 1½ -inch balls. Place on a lightly greased jelly-roll pan and bake 25 minutes. Always cook turkey to well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Let meatballs stand 10 minutes.
  4. In large bowl, toss meatballs and heated pasta sauce. Serve over pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
