Quick and easy turkey meatballs cooked in fire-roasted tomato goodness!

It’s-a meat-a-ball-a time!

And not just any meatballs, but these quick and easy fire-roasted tomato turkey meatballs!

You can make them as cute little appetizers. Or serve them up over your favorite pasta noodles. Or if you want to go extra healthy, try serving them up over some quinoa or couscous.

However you serve them, these little guys are packed with flavor, and are a BREEZE to make. Here’s how!

My favorite thing about meatballs -- pretty much dump all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Then stir or use your fingers to combine until will mixed.

Scoop out whatever size you would like (I used a small cookie scoop).

Then shape them into little meatballs.

Roll turkey meatballs with your hands.

Meanwhile, heat 2 cans of Progresso’s Recipe Starters Fire-Roasted Tomato Sauce in a large, deep skillet or stockpot. (You can also throw some chopped basil in there if you’d like.)

Once the sauce comes to a simmer, pop the meatballs in there in an even layer. Cover, and let cook for about 30 minutes, turning the meatballs occasionally.

Then pull them out and garnish wish some extra fresh basil. And dunk them in some extra sauce.
