Notes

I really love making this with ground chicken OR ground turkey. If I use ground turkey, I like the dark meat ground turkey that they sell at Whole Foods.

For mixing, I usually wash my hands, take my rings off, and mix it all up with my hands. 🤗

I prefer chunk-less meatballs when it comes to onion and garlic which is why I prefer to use powder. But if you like to have the chunks, I think you could use finely minced fresh garlic and onion with good results!

The sauce pictured here is a store-bought vodka sauce from DeLallo! It’s delicious.
