Turkey Vegetable Meatballs

This recipe takes an Italian classic – the meatball – and spins it into a modern, veggie packed version featuring turkey that is sure to please your Paleo palate.  Taking the place of traditional breadcrumbs; carrots, bell peppers, and mushrooms keep these meatballs tender and herbs and spices pack them with flavor.  They taste amazing served atop Spaghetti Squash Noodles or Spring Herbs and Greens Pasta!
