Cheesy Turkey Meatballs

Mix 1/2 pound lean ground turkey with 1 tablespoon diced onion, 1 teaspoon minced garlic, 1 beaten egg, 1/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons nonfat milk, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Form 8 meatballs, placing a 1/2-inch mozzarella cube in center of each. Mist a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; bake meatballs 15 minutes at 425 degrees. Saute 2 minced garlic cloves in 1 teaspoon canola oil 1 minute. Add 2 cups chopped zucchini; cook 5 minutes. Serve 4 meatballs over zucchini and 1/3 cup cooked whole wheat orzo; top with 1/2 cup tomato sauce. (Freeze leftovers.)
