Weelicious: Turkey Pesto Meatballs
Other than hot dogs, Charlotte is not much of a meat eater. But I keep trying new things in the hope that I find a dish or two featuring meat that she’ll enjoy. The Weelicious cookbook is proving to be a good source for some recipes Charlotte will enjoy.
These turkey meatballs looked so simple but tasty! The addition of pesto looked interesting and added a nice flavor. Charlotte and I both enjoyed them! She did not devour them but eating one meatball was a win!
One note: I had to cook the meatballs for about 10 minutes longer than the recipe called for.
Turkey Pesto Emails
Adapted from Weelicious Cookbook
- 1.5 lbs ground turkey
- 1/4 store-bought pesto
- 1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 to 3 cups tomato sauce (I used Rao’s)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place the turkey, pesto, bread crumbs, cheese, and salt in a large bowl and combine thoroughly.
Pour the tomato sauce into a 9×9 baking pan.
Use about 1 tablespoon per meatball, roll the mixture into balls and place in baking pan. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 25 minutes, or until cooked through.
