  • Summary

    This healthy turkey meatball and noodle dish has an irresistible Thai-inspired twist and offers three options for plating. Option One serves the flavorful meatballs, vegetables, and noodles "plain" (without broth)—perfect for kids or less adventurous eaters. Option Two transforms the dish into a savory noodle bowl with a rich and aromatic coconut broth, which appeals to a wide range of palates. And for those who like it hot, opt for Option Three; whisk in store-bought Thai red curry paste and finish the dish with a ton of fresh toppings. Feel free to customize to everyone's taste by mixing and matching Options One-Three within your family.
