Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the egg with the milk, bread crumbs, and Parmesan; mix until well combined. Add the turkey and mix gently to avoid overworking the meat. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Shape into golf ball-size spheres and place about 1 inch apart on baking sheet.
  3. Bake 15 minutes. Flip and bake until starting to brown, about 5 minutes more.
  4. Meanwhile, bring the marinara sauce to a simmer in a large saucepan over medium heat. Once meatballs are done, carefully transfer to marinara and toss to coat; simmer 5 minutes. Reserve 4 meatballs and 1/2 cup sauce for the sliders recipe on the next slide.
  5. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and add to sauce, tossing to coat. Garnish with the basil if desired.
