Turkey meatballs are great substitutes to regular beef meatballs as they are lower in calories per serving. Seasoned with basil leaves, garlic, pepper, and parmesan cheese give embodied flavors that marries well with chicken broth. You can make the meatballs a day in advanced and keep them in the freezer. You may substitute ground turkey with lean ground chicken if desired.
