Ready for a new spin on a classic meatball recipe? Here, we used lean ground turkey and incorporated healthy dried apricots to make this dish too good-for-you to be believed. The best part? These meatballs are just as delicious served with pasta.
I love carbonara. But sometimes I find the egg sauce a bit, well, slimy. To fix that I often dilute the eggs with cream. While this tastes pretty darned good, it happens to have a pretty darned bad effect on my hips. So lately I’ve been using yogurt instead. You can use any kind of plain yogurt in this recipe (from non-fat to whole milk). I’m still partial to the whole milk version, but again, I swap it out for lower fat when my mind is on my hips. I also swap out the traditional bacon or pancetta for the much lighter Canadian version.
