Parmesan Turkey Meatballs



These meatballs are crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside and packed full with flavor. Because I like to use lean ground turkey (95% fat free), the meatballs are in danger of being dry - thus, enter the minced onion, which gives each ball its moistness and bold flavor.  Here, I've paired it with my Easiest Spaghetti Sauce. I transferred the meatballs to a plate once done, kept the brown bits from pan and used the same pan to roast my grape tomatoes.  Never ever throw away those precious brown bits!
