Clean and Gluten Free Spaghetti and Meatballs

Sometimes, my Italian side of me takes over and all it craves is PASTA PASTA PASTA! During yet another of one of these attacks it was quite specific: spaghetti and meatballs! So I buckled down and throw together some ingredients on a whim and came up with something absolutely delicious and completely clean!


1/4 cup Mozzarella 
1/3 cup Parmesan 
1 egg 
1 lb lean ground turkey breast 
5-6 large basil leaves, torn 
1 teaspoon oregano 
Little under 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder 
1/2 medium onion diced 
5 organic baby carrots diced 

1 bag of brown rice spaghetti - can substitute with whole wheat or quinoa pasta if desired
Tomato sauce - I used marinara (organic, low sodium, all natural) 

1. Add all ingredients to one bowl. 
2. Mix with hand until well mixed. 
3. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and then spray with no stick spray.
4. Form the mixture into balls and place on baking sheet. 
5. Bake for 25 mins at 375F or until they seem ready. The mozzarella will leak out around the edges a little and slightly brown. This is normal don't worry! 
6. In the mean time cook pasta following directions on bag/box. 

Once the meatballs are done scrape them off the sheet and then add them to the pasta with some tomato sauce and sprinkle on some Parmesan if desired. Enjoy!! 

I made rather big ones so this made a total of 10 meatballs which lasted a while as I use about 3 per serving. You can store the extras in the fridge or freeze!
