Turkey Meatballs and Herbed Cream Sauce

These slow cooked meatballs include tarragon and parsley in the mix, bringing herby brightness to this delicious, classic dish. We’ve used ground turkey to keep the meatball on the leaner side and Italian breadcrumbs for a quick and easy seasoning solution. Feel free to get creative with other herb variations such as dill or thyme to make this dish your own.
