Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 6: 1/4 tsp mild, 1/2 tsp medium and 1 tsp spicy! Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, peel, then grate carrot. Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
Line a baking sheet with foil. Add turkey, breadcrumbs, half the garlic and 1/4 tsp salt (dbl for 4 ppl) to a large bowl. Season with pepper, then combine. Roll mixture into 10 equal-sized meatballs (20 meatballs for 4 ppl). Transfer meatballs to the prepared baking sheet. Roast in the middle of the oven until cooked through, 9-12 min.**
Meanwhile, add spaghetti to the boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 9-10 min. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl), then drain and return spaghetti to the same pot, off heat.
Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then grated carrot. Cook, stirring often, until softened, 4-5 min. Add Italian Seasoning, tomato sauce base and remaining garlic. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1-2 min. Add crushed tomatoes and broth concentrate. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly, 6-8 min. (TIP: If sauce is splattering, cover with a lid but still stir occasionally.)
Add meatballs, sauce, spinach, reserved pasta water and half the Parmesan to the pot with spaghetti. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, then toss until spinach wilts, 1-2 min.
Divide spaghetti and meatballs between plates. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan over top.
