  1. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. In large bowl, combine first 5 ingredients; salt and pepper as desired. Form about 2 tablespoons turkey mixture around each cheese cube, created 20-24 meatballs.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place meatballs on baking sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes or until internal temperature of turkey reaches 165°F on an instant-read food thermometer (some cheese may ooze out onto baking sheet).
  3. Meanwhile, prepare spaghetti according to package directions; drain. In medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine crushed tomatoes and Mama Mia™ Marinara Sauce Mix. Bring to a simmer; reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Serve meatballs and sauce over spaghetti.

Makes 6 servings. Serve with a green salad.

Make ahead & freeze: Prepare step 1 and 3. Place meatballs between layers of wax paper in a gallon freezer bag. Toss cooked spaghetti with 1 tablespoon oil and place in quart freezer bag. Place sauce in a quart freezer bag. Place spaghetti and sauce bags in a gallon freezer bag. Seal all bags well, label and freeze. Thaw completely. Continue with step 2, adding spaghetti to sauce to reheat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So So So So SOOOO Good!!! I can't believe these haven't been reviewed yet! We LOVE this recipe! My son works at an italian restaurant and was bragging to his boss about the stuffed meatballs his mom made! Just another recipe that keeps me buying the Garden Guacamole Starter - hope it becomes a part of the year-round line! (As a side note, I tried making these with my regular, homemade sauce, and my son was less enthusiastic - the meatballs really do pair perfectly with the Mama Mia Marinara Sauce!)
