Make Me A Meal Monday: Spaghetti Sauce and Meatballs

There is nothing better to me than homemade spaghetti sauce and meatballs!
We had a pretty uneventful weekend so I decided to make my annual batch of both.

1 lb ground turkeys
1 lb sweet turkey sausage
1 1/2 cups freshly grated romano cheese
1/2 cup of milk
2 eggs
1 tsp salt, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, basil and pepper

Preheat oven to 375*

Mix all ingredients together.
Place on wire cookie sheet and spray with non stick spray. Make meatballs and place on wire rack.

Bake meatballs for 20 minutes. Remove, let sit for 10 minutes.

Remove and place in sauce. Cook for 30-45 minutes stirring frequently.

Spaghetti Sauce
1 lb ground turkey
1 yellow onion
2 cloves of minced garlic
52 oz of tomato puree
8 oz of tomato paste
1/2 cup of red wine {i may have put a little extra ;)}
1 tspn dried sweet basil

Chop onion. Sautee until almost translucent. Add ground turkey.

Drain if needed.
Add garlic during final 2 minutes of browning {or after draining}.
Add rest of ingredients. Let simmer for 30 minutes.

And then splurge for your first meal!
Meatball sub, with ruffles chips, and an apple!

Happy Monday :)
