1
Prepare or bring store-brought sauce to a gentle simmer in a 5-qt saucepan.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the onion, carrot, garlic, Parmesan, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper.

Add the ground turkey, egg whites and oats. Mix thoroughly until the ingredients are well combined.
4
Shape the meat mixture into approximately 20 meatballs, about 1 1/2 in. in diameter.

Carefully place all the meatballs in the marinara sauce. Do not stir; stirring will cause the meatballs to break apart. Don't worry if some of the meatballs are not completely submerged in the sauce. Cover the pot and simmer gently for 20 minutes.

Remove the lid and gently stir the meatballs to thoroughly coat them with the sauce. Simmer, uncovered, for an additional 20 minutes.
