 Ingredients List

  • - 1 lb extra lean ground turkey
  • - 1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  • - 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • - 1/2 cup liquid egg substitute
  • - 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • - 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • - 1/2 tbsp dried basil
  • - 1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • - 1 tbsp granulated onion powder
  • - 1/2 tbsp sea salt
  • - 2 tsp black pepper
  • - 24 oz canned diced tomatoes
  • - Low Points Plus rolls, like Sara Lee Delightful Hot Dog Buns or Orowheat Sandwich Rounds
  • - 8 slices of light Sargento Reduced Fat Provolone Cheese
  • OPTIONAL: garnish with fresh shredded basil


Preheat oven to 350°F. Place oven racks in top 1/3 of oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or foil that”™s been coated with non-fat cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine turkey, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, egg, oregano, parsley, basil, garlic and salt & pepper. Scoop out turkey mixture and gently shape a small meatball (about the size of a tablespoon) and place on a prepared baking sheet; repeat with remaining ingredients to make 32 meatballs. Bake about 10 to 15 minutes. Make sure to shake the pans every 5 min to promote even browning of the meatballs.

Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan, heat up can of diced tomatoes. Feel free to mix in additional garlic, parsley, oregano, basil, salt and peeper for extra flavor. It won”™t affect the points value.
When meatballs are done, remove from baking sheets. Place rolls on same baking sheets; top each piece with 4 meatballs. Spoon about 3 tablespoons sauce over meatballs in each sandwich; top each with 1 slice of light provolone cheese. Bake until cheese is melted and sandwiches are heated through, about 5 to 7 minutes.
