Every Day With Rachael Ray Recipe for Turkey Meatballs in Paprika Tomato Sauce

Ingredients

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 onions, finely chopped
2 ribs celery, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
One 14.5-ounce can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
One 12-ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained
2 tablespoons paprika
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup unseasoned breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 pounds ground dark meat turkey

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions, celery and garlic and cook, stirring often, until softened, 7 minutes. Transfer 1 1/3 cups of the onion mixture to a large bowl; let cool. Reserve the skillet.
  2. Using a food processor, puree the tomatoes and roasted peppers. Add the puree to the skillet and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir in the paprika and season with salt and pepper; transfer to a large slow cooker, cover and set to low temperature.
  3. Whisk the breadcrumbs, egg, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper into the remaining onion mixture. Mix in the turkey. Form 1 1/2-inch meatballs. Add the meatballs to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat for 6 hours.

Serves 6.

does anyone know if the meatballs themselves freeze ok after cooking? I'd like to make spaghetti and meatballs for lunches, but since there's just me. I'd like to be able to use them all week :)

I don't like turkey meatballs. What is wrong with lean ground beef? Tastes better. And meatballs and sauce are pretty simple in just a pot on low.

This is good! When I'm in a hurry, I buy sauce..but usually make my own & freeze away in portions.
