Serves: 6
  • 1 Recipe for Slow Cooker Italian Meat Gravy Cooked
  • 6 Ciabatta Rolls (I use Trader Joe's)
  • 2 Pounds of Turkey Breast (Ground)
  • 1 Cup of Finely Chopped Onion
  • 1 Large Egg Yolk
  • ½ Teaspoon Each of Ground Oregano, Dried Parsley, Garlic Powder, Dried Basil, Salt & Pepper
  • 1.5 Teaspoons of Reduced Fat Kraft Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Vegetable Cooking Spray
  • 2 Large Green Bell Peppers, Cored and Sliced
  • 2 Medium to Large Onions, Sliced
  1. When Slow Cooker Italian Meat Gravy is done keep it warm in the slow cooker and set aside. Combine ground turkey breast, onion, egg yolk, spices and Parmesean Cheese into a bowl and mix thoroughly. Shape into 12 meatballs (for 6 sandwiches) all about the same size.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place meatballs on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
  3. Take out of oven and set aside. Cover with foil to keep warm or place into the slow cooker Italian Meat Gravy.
  4. In a large saute pan that has been sprayed with vegetable cooking spray over medium heat, saute peppers and onions until softened. Set aside.
  5. Build your sandwich using the Ciabatta Rolls, adding 2 meatballs per roll and a few tablespoons of the Slow Cooker Italian Meat Gravy.  Add sauteed peppers and onions on top.
  6. This makes 6 sandwiches. On the Green Plan, each sandwich is 5 SmartPoints.  On the Blue and Purple Plans, it is 3 SmartPoints per sandwich. Enjoy!
