Directions

Heat the oven to 375 F. Coat a wire rack with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add the onion and saute until the onion is soft and translucent, about 4 mintues. Stir in the garlic and Italian herb blend, then cook for another 30 seconds. Transfer the onion mixture to a large bowl, then stir in the tomato sauce. Let cool for 10 minutes. Add teh ground turkey, turkey sausage, breadcrumbs, egg whites, sale and pepper, then mix well. Form the mixture into 1-inch meatballs (makes 24 meatballs). Place the meatballs on the prepared wire rack and bake until the meatballs are browned and cooked through, about 20 minutes. To assemble the pita pockets, cut off one edge of each pita. Stuff with lettuce, tomato and meatballs, then drizzle with dressing.
