Form the meatballs with the turkey, cheese, bread crumbs, 1 tbsp seasoning and egg. Saute in olive oil over medium high heat, browning on at least 3 sides. Remove from pan and set aside.

Add the 2 cans of tomatoes to the pan stirring in the remaining seasoning. Simmer for 5 minutes, then add in the meatballs. Simmer another 10 - 12 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.
