Spinach And Feta Turkey Balls

So here it is, an easy mouth-watering combination of lean turkey with two of my faves, spinach and feta. Yes, I know it looks pink because it is raw. Β The husband said the photo looked like the balls had pink frosting on them. No, they are raw, ready to go in the oven. This is how it went down:

Ingredients:

2 packages of lean ground turkey

2 cups chopped fresh spinach, I chopped in a blender in 20 seconds

1 small container of reduced fat feta cheese

1 tsp of garlic/parsley powder

salt & pepper to taste

Mix all of this up in a big bowl, use your clean hands because Β it is easier than using a spoon and you have to make balls anyway. Form into balls and place the balls in a lightly greased muffin tin. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 to 30 minutes or until done.

They smell so good while cooking. Such a simple and delicious way to get lean protein, veges, and some yum yum with the feta.

Let me know how your balls turn out!

Easy Pasta Salad and Easy Herb Chicken and Vegetables

Dinner last night was prepared in 5 minutes. I mixed 1/3 cup of water with a packet of Grill Mates Zesty Herb seasonings (you could use italian seasonings) with 2 tbsp olive oil and 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar. I place chicken breasts in a pan and snuggled some asparagus and carrots around the edges. I then drizzled the herb mixture on top of the whole dish. Ready to go into a 375 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until chicken is done. Quick and healthy πŸ™‚

This pasta salad has to be one of the best tasting salads I have ever had. The best part, it is simple. These are the ingredients I used.

Of course boil your pasta. I was looking to find brown rice penne but the store I went to does not have it, so I used whole wheat penne. Place arugula, chopped onion, feta, a jar of marinated artichokes drained, and a jar of sun-driedΒ tomatoes in oil drained in a large bowl. I did not measure ingredients I just eyeballed how much I wanted. I made a large bowl of salad because I want leftovers. It is best when all the ingredients marry each other if you know what I mean πŸ™‚ Add cooked pasta and drizzle with a little olive oil, sea salt and pepper to taste and it is done. So flavorful!!!
