Olives and turkey meatballs? Say what?

Those might not be the first two things you’d think to pair together, but they actually combine to make a nutritious and savory meal!

Turkey meatballs are a healthy alternative to their regular counterpart, and of course, they’re packed with a good amount of protein. The olives inside add a bold layer of flavor to an already scrumptious dish.

Switch the pasta out for some veggies for a complete meal!

  • 20 oz of Italian seasoned lean ground turkey
  • 30 pitted olives
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
