Using ground turkey sausage in these meatballs makes a low-calorie Italian dinner simple to prepare. Serve with a tasty pasta sauce and spaghetti.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

  • 1 lb. ground Italian-style turkey sausage
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp salt


1. Using your hands, combine all ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Mix until the ingredients are well combined.
