1-1/4 pounds ground turkey

1/2 cup Sun-Maid Natural Raisins

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

3 tablespoons finely minced onion

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

1-2 slices firm white bread, crumbled (1 cup)

1 egg

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 jar (24 oz.) prepared marinara sauce


Combine all ingredients except marinara in a bowl. Mix well with a spoon or hands.

Shape meat into 1-1/2-inch balls, to make 16 meatballs.

Heat marinara sauce in a medium saucepan. Place meatballs in sauce. Cover and simmer on medium-low heat 20-25 minutes or until done, turning meatballs once or twice so they cook evenly.

Serve with pasta or on a French roll sandwich.
