This is a pared-down recipe that my husband and I enjoy. It makes a satisfying dinner for two, served over hot rice or noodles. I like to accompany it with baked acorn squash. -Audrey Thibodeau, Mesa, Arizona

"Tasty recipee. All four of us liked this. As I cooked it, I would have rated it a 4 (to me, a 5 star is a You MUST make this!!!) but since I modified it a little I bumped it back to a five to be fair) I used Tom juice instead of v8. I doubt that hurt the flavor. I will make this again. Best ground turkey recipe I have found so far. I will serve it over pasta next time. We had it over rice and I think the pasta will fit the sauce a little better."

"The first time that I made this recipe, I followed the recipe and noted that the meatballs were excellent and moist. I have continued to make the meatball recipe with the addition of sea salt & celery salt in place of regular salt. I also have added garlic granules about ¼ tsp when using 1# of ground turkey. When I don?t have butter flavored crackers in the house, I use my plain bread crumbs instead. My next idea is to make the meatballs and then freeze them after cooking and cooling them. For those nights, when I want something easy to make that my family loves. Enjoy!"
