When I have meatballs with spaghetti, I am transported to being eight years old watching Lady and the Tramp. The moment when Tramp pushes a meatball with his nose to Lady at the end “Bella Notte” is imprinted in every Disney viewers’ minds, making Italian food – and particularly spaghetti – the emblem of romance, with the last meatball at its heart-stopping core.

I am not entirely sure, however, why meatballs are often associated with the other type of heart-stopping, too: cholesterol heaven. They’re not too bad for you, and this turkey spinach version is particularly heart-healthy. I followed Bon Appetit’s recipe for Turkey spinach meatballs because I loved the idea of getting some of my greens in one meal with my pasta. What I was additionally¬†excited about was the¬†volume: this made almost twice the number of meatballs I usually get from the regular non-spinach variety, so if you’re a glutton like me, this is the way to go.
