Spaghetti and Meatballs

I know you probably have a million recipes for meatballs but here is one more. We have been using ground turkey for low fat cooking and NO ONE can tell the difference. Give turkey a try and you will see with a little TLC it is just as good as beef. I like to have pasta and sauce only when I eat spaghetti but everyone else wants meatballs so of course I make them. What else do I have to do? hee hee

2 pounds ground turkey
2 eggs-beaten
1 cup panko bread crumbs(use Panko, they do make a difference)
1/2 cup milk
1 T Italian Seasoning of your choice
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 T garlic powder
1/2 cup tomato sauce
Paul Newman's Sockarooni Pasta Sauce

Place panko in a large bowl with milk, let the panko soak up the milk, once this happens add the rest of your ingredients and mix by HAND until mixed well. Form into balls, the size is up to you. We like ours about a 2 inch diameter, now place meatballs on a parchment lined baking pan with sides and bake at 450' for 30 minutes or until completely done and no longer appear pink in the middle. I always cut one and check when the 30 minutes are up. Serve with Paul Newman's Sockarooni Pasta Sauce and spaghetti. That is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek tonight.
