3. Spoon batter 1/4 cup at a time on a preheated skillet or griddle greased with a dab of butter or a few drops of canola oil. Cook for 3-4 minutes on the first side until you can see many bubbles forming on the edges. Flip them over and cook for another minute, or until lightly browned.

Recipes to Start the New Year Off Right


• 2 tbsp. skim milk
• 2 slice thin-sliced white bread
• 1 1/4 lb. ground white-meat turkey
• 1/4 c. grated zucchini
• 3/4 c. finely chopped onion
• 1/4 c. part-skim ricotta cheese
• 2 tbsp. grated Romano or Parmesan cheese
• 2 tbsp. Chopped flat-leaf parsley
• 1 tbsp. garlic paste
• 1 large egg
• 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
• 1/4 tsp. Freshly ground black pepper
• 1 tbsp. olive oil
• 2 c. marinara sauce
• 12 oz. dried spaghetti

1. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat milk until just warm. Add bread, to absorb milk. Squeeze out extra liquid from bread, then chop.
2. In a large bowl, combine bread, 1 pound of the turkey, zucchini, 1/4 cup of the onion, cheeses, parsley, garlic paste, egg, salt, and pepper. Roll into 1-inch balls.
3. In a large, deep nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Brown meatballs in batches, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove meatballs to a bowl.
4. Spray same skillet with olive oil cooking spray. Cook the remaining 1/2 cup onion over medium heat until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the remaining 1/4 pound turkey and cook (breaking it up with a wooden spoon) until no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Add marinara and heat until simmering. Add meatballs, cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until meatballs are cooked through, about 15 minutes.
5. Cook pasta according to package directions. Serve meatballs and sauce over spaghetti.
