Spaghetti with Turkey Meatballs

Dinner tonight is a simple meal. That is Spaghetti with turkey meatballs. I bought ground turkey thinking to make stuffing for the bell peppers I bought yesterday. Unfortunately, I could not find the stuffing bread in my kitchen. So, I decided to cook spaghetti with the turkey meatballs instead for our dinner today.

4 cups thin spaghetti. Boil in water until cooked. Drain and set aside.
2 cups ready to use spaghetti sauce. Heat on low for 5 minutes.

For the meatballs:
1 pound ground turkey
1 big yellow onion
1 cup chopped coriander leaves.
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
olive oil to fry
Garnish with grated cheese. I don't have Parmesan cheese, so I am using Irish cheese.

Dice onion.
Chop coriander leaves finely.
Mix onion, coriander, salt and ground black pepper with the turkey.
Make small bite size ball.
Heat olive oil.
Fry the meatballs until golden brown.

To assemble it, place spaghetti on the plate. Then add meatballs. Pour some of the spaghetti sauce and then garnish with the grated cheese.
Serve warm.
