Turkey Meatballs in Garlic Sauce Recipe

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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 22, 2013

"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!"
