Tuscan Meatballs

1 pkg Frozen chopped spinach (i use half)
1 pound ground turkey (beef works too)
1 egg
1 cup Seasoned bread crumbs
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 handfuls shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp garlic salt
1 to 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
12 ounces Spaghetti
1 packet dry pesto mix

Heat Oven to 350 degrees. Squeeze water out of Spinach. Mix spinach, turkey, egg. bread crumbs, Parmesan, mozzarella, garlic salt in a bowl. Shape mixture into meatballs.
Heat oil in large frying pan over med-high heat. Brown meatballs, about 2-3 min each side. Once browned transfer to cookie sheet and put in oven for about 20 minutes.
Once meatballs are baking cook spaghetti and prepare pesto sauce.
Add cooked spaghetti back to pan that meatballs were cooked in. Add pesto sauce to pasta.

Seriously, I think about these meatballs for days after. They are so good.

I made these on Saturday and they were so good. I used broken up wheat bread instead of the bread crumbs and it made them really moist. Good recipe, Paige!
