These little guys are so full of flavor and so easy to make!  Not to mention they are healthier than your average meatball, using ground turkey meat and spinach.  Plus they bake up in under 15 minutes, not bad!  Perfect as an appetizer served with marinara for dipping, over a big plate of spaghetti, or in a meatball sandwich.   Try them for dinner this week!!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl combine all ingredients and stir until just combined.  Do not over mix or your meatballs may be tough!

Use a tablespoon sized scoop and place meatballs on prepared baking sheets.  Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cooked through.

Serve immediately.  How easy is that???
