This turkey meatball recipe was one that Helen decided to try as a healthy alternative to using sauce from a jar. She found this recipe in a Joe Wicks Lean in 15 cook book, so its's good for you, tasty, quick and easy. It takes hardly any prep or cooking time due to the use of ready made meatballs. You can of course make you're own with turkey mince and seasoning. Helen doubled up the original recipe to feed four and although there are not many ingredients, the feta cheese really added to the overall flavour of this dish.
1/2 tbsp coconut oil or olive oil
1 x red or yellow pepper - de-seeded, thinly sliced
1 x courgette - diced
1 x red onion - diced
2 x trays small ready made turkey meatballs.
2 x 400g tins of chopped tomatoes
40g feta cheese - crumbled
parsley leaves roughly chopped - optional
Cook pasta of choice following packet instructions.
Heat the oil in a frying pan.
Fry the courgette, onions and peppers until they begin to soften.
Turn up the heat, add the meatballs and fry for approx 2-3 mins, keep turning meatballs to ensure they brown all over.
Add the tomatoes, bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer for 5 mins or until meatballs cooked thoroughly ensuring that meat has changed from pink to white.
Remove the pan from heat and add the feta, to finish sprinkle with parsley and serve with cooked pasta. For an even healthier option you cpu;d swap the pasta for courgettie.
