We made these meatballs healthier by using vegetables and lean ground turkey to decrease the fat and increase the fiber. They can also be easily made into a paleo-friendly dish by replacing the flour with coconut flour. This scrumptious meatballs are delicious when served over pasta, on a sub, or even by themselves!
