1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sweet or spicy smoked
6 sprigs parsley, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil

Makes 4 servings.
Lightly mix the turkey, egg, onion, bread crumbs, salt, paprika and parsley together in a medium bowl; form the mixture into 2-inch balls.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add the meatballs. Cook, turning, until browned on all sides, about 8 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and wine to the skillet; lower heat to a simmer. Cook, turning the meatballs in the sauce occasionally and spooning the liquid over the meatballs, until meatballs are cooked through, 10-15 minutes.
