Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Meatballs with Formaggio Pasta Sauce

The best part about meatballs is that they are not all the same. There are so many different ways you can create a great tasting meatball that is perfect for you and your tastebuds. This time around, I was feeling very cheesy. I wanted something savory, not spicy, not herb-filled, just simply a savory meatball topped with a cheesy sauce. That’s where Cucina & Amore Formaggio Pasta Sauce came in handy. This recipe was inspired by the Turkey Pesto Meatballs recipe by Mom.me. I made a few tweaks based on what I had on hand and what I was craving at the moment.

Serving Size: 6-9
Prep Time: 10- 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the ground turkey, pesto, parmesan cheese, and Italian bread crumbs
  3. With a tablespoon, scoop out the mixture into meatballs and place into a single layer into a baking dish
  4. Top the meatballs with an entire jar of Formaggio Pasta Sauce
  5. Bake for 30 minutes
  6. Enjoy!
