Instructions

The Meatballs:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 13- by 11-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spread ⅓ cup of the tomato sauce on the bottom of the dish.
  • In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, zucchini, grated onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, ¼ cup parsley, egg, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  • Using 1 ½ tablespoons per meatball (a large cookie scoop works well here), form meatballs by rolling between the palms of your hands. Place the meatballs, in a single layer, in the prepared baking dish.
  • Cover the meatballs with the rest of the tomato sauce and sprinkle with the feta cheese.
  • Bake until the meatballs are cooked through, about 25 minutes.
  • Garnish with the remaining 2 tablespoons of the parsley.

The Sauce:

  • Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, oregano and red pepper flakes, and cook for 1 minute.
  • Stir in the crushed tomatoes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 minutes.
