Weelicious: Turkey Pesto Meatballs

My friend Amy bought me the Weelicious cookbook for my birthday.  The recipes are family-friendly, healthy, and relatively easy to make.

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.
