  • 2 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon snipped fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • dash of pepper
  • 1 pound uncooked ground turkey
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon instant chicken bouillon granules

In a medium mixing bowl stir together egg white, soft bread crumbs, 1/4 cup of the onion, the milk, thyme, salt, and pepper. Add turkey; mix well. Shape mixture into 1-inch meatballs.
Coat a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place meatballs in the baking pan. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree F. oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until meatballs are done (165 degrees F). Drain off any juices.
Meanwhile, coat an unheated large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Add mushrooms and remaining onion. Cook until onion is tender. Stir together water, cornstarch, and bouillon granules. Stir cornstarch mixture into mushroom mixture. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in meatballs and wine; heat through. Stir in parsley. Serve over hot cooked noodles. If desired, garnish with carrot curls. Makes 5 servings.

Make Ahead Tip
