Resist the urge to pick up those frozen meatballs filled with who knows what and whip these Pistachio Turkey Meatballs up instead. Not only are you getting heart-smart mono- and polyunsaturated fats from the pistachios, but you're also increasing your fiber and protein intake. Wonderful Pistachios makes Roasted and Salted and Lightly Salted Pistachios with no shells, so you can cut your prep time in half.
