RECIPE: Healthy pasta and roasted carrots

Healthy Pasta and Meatballs

1lb Whole Grain Pasta*

16ea Turkey Meatballs (pre-cooked) *

4c Pre-made spaghetti Sauce *

Salt as needed

Parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. Fill a large pot 2/3 full of water, add a pinch of salt, bring to a boil. Add pasta
  2. While pasta is cooking, heat sauce in a pan, add meatballs and cover. Simmer for 5-10 minutes
  3. Serve while hot! ¼ of the pasta, 1c sauce, and 4 meatballs = 1 svg



  • Don’t be afraid to buy premade meatballs! They’re usually made with simple ingredients, pre-cooked, and fast to thaw
  • Always read your labels! Under Ingredients, ensure there is no added sugars, tomatoes create their own sweetness naturally, no need to add more!
  • There’s lots of types of pasta! Give your child the choice to choose the shape! They’re more invested when they get to make decisions
