I dont really eat red meat and I dont like red sauce (i know I am way too picky), so when I ran across this recipe in one of my moms southern living cookbooks I decided to try it. Wow!! Sooooo good. Just wanted to share it. I am def keeping this forever.

White Spaghetti and Meatballs
· 1 1/2 pounds skinned and boned chicken breast halves, cut into chunks
· 1 large garlic clove
· 1 large egg
· 10 saltine crackers, finely crushed
· 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
· Vegetable cooking spray
· 1 (8-ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms
· 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
· 1 teaspoon olive oil
· 1 large garlic clove, minced
· 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
· 1/2 cup dry white wine
· 3 cups fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
· 1 (8-ounce) package 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
· 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
· 1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
· 1 (8-ounce) package spaghetti
Process chicken and garlic clove in a food processor until ground.
Stir together chicken mixture, egg, and next 2 ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and chill 20 minutes.
Shape mixture into 1-inch balls. Place a rack coated with cooking spray in an aluminum foil-lined broiling pan. Arrange meatballs on rack; lightly spray meatballs with cooking spray.
Bake at 375° for 13 minutes or until golden and thoroughly cooked.
Sauté mushrooms and nutmeg in hot oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Add minced garlic; sauté 1 minute. Sprinkle with flour; cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Add wine, stirring to loosen browned particles from bottom of pan. Whisk in broth. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes. Add cream cheese, whisking until smooth and sauce is thickened.
Add meatballs, red pepper, and parsley to sauce; simmer 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions omitting salt and oil; drain. Serve sauce with meatballs over pasta.
