Wednesday night is spaghetti night in our house. Well, not actually IN our house…our favorite pub down the street has a spaghetti special on Wednesday nights and after a day of brain drain we typically blow off whatever healthy dinner we had planned and head on down to the pub. N doesn’t mind.

But, it’s the new year and all, so we’re trying to be healthy…can we get to February already so we can start talking about chocolate and martinis?

Right, still January. Healthy. So here’s an alternative to a huge portion of pub-style spaghetti and meatballs: Turkey Meatballs Florentine.
