Gluten Free Turkey Meatballs and Sauce:
1#  93%  Fat Free Ground Turkey
1 Tbl. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Gluten Free Breadcrumbs - use regular breadcrumbs if your not Gluten Free
¼ Cup Parmesan Cheese
½  Cup Finally Chopped/Minced Onion
½  Cup Finally Grated Carrot
1 Egg
2 Tbl Parsley
To taste:
Chopped Garlic
Salt and Pepper

Mix all the above either in a KitchenAid mixer or by hand. I do not measure the bread crumbs,, after it has been mixed check to see if you need more breadcrumbs.  I use the Pampered Chef cookie scoop to make small meatballs or make any size you wish. Spray a 9X13 pan with cooking Spray.
Bake in a 375* 30-35 Minutes

Meanwhile as the Meatballs are cooking:
Make the Sauce:

In a large pan:

Heat 1 Tbl. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Add 1 small chopped Onion
Slightly brown
Add Garlic to taste,,, cook 1-2 minutes
Add 3 Tbl. Tomato Paste mix in
Cook for 1 minute
Add: ½ cup Red Wine (Optional but add such a nice flavor)
Cook off the Wine
1 - 28 oz Can of Crushed Tomatoes
Add to taste:
Italian Seasoning
Salt and Pepper
Simmer on low for 2 hours
If the sauce is to thick add some Water.
If you'd like add some chopped Tomatoes.
Check the seasonings and  re-adjust to your taste.

Add the Meatballs
Simmer on low..covered for 1 hour
Check the Meatballs after an hour,.. do not over cook them because they can dry out.
I have cooked them in the Sauce as long as 2 hours on a very very low setting.

Serve the Meatballs over your choice of Gluten Free Pasta, or regular Pasta if your not Gluten Free. Sprinkle with Parmesan and Pecorino Romano Cheese.


**NOTE** I got the idea for this recipe from Ellie Krieger from the Food Network. I made a few changes to her recipe to my liking.  Also I'd  like to thank Bobby Flay from the Food Network for suggesting adding the Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the Turkey Meatballs, they were so moist!!! **
