  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 Tablespoon whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 1 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup onion diced
  • 3 medium carrots sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 (32 ounce) can chicken broth I used Organic, reduced-sodium
  • 9 ounce refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • pinch red pepper
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon salt optional
  • 1/4 cup freshly grate Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups fresh spinach



  1. Gently mix all the meatball ingredients until everything is combined.

  2. Using a small, spring release scoop, form small meatballs, about 1 tablespoon each.

     You’ll get about 25 to 28 meatballs


  1. In a large nonstick pot or Dutch oven, melt coconut oil over medium-low heat. Add onion, garlic, carrots, and meatballs. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring to brown the meatballs on all sides.

  2. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add the tortellini, red pepper, black pepper, and salt. Cook tortellini according to package directions, usually about 7 minutes.

  3. Once tortellini is cooked. Turn off heat and add spinach. Stir. Serve and top with Parmesan cheese
