Mozzarella-Stuffed Pesto Turkey Meatballs Recipe

Directions

Share

Ingredients :

  • 3 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
  • ½ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • ½ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • ¼ cup prepared pesto
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella, cut into small cubes
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 (24 ounce) jars marinara sauce
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Step 2

    Place the ground turkey, onion, garlic, egg, bread crumbs, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, parsley, pesto, milk, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Mix until evenly blended, then form into 1 3/4-inch meatballs. Make a hole in the meatball with your finger and place a cheese cube in the hole. Seal the meatball around the cheese and place on a nonstick baking sheet. Drizzle the olive oil over the meatballs.

  • Step 3

    Bake in the preheated oven until the meatballs are no longer pink in the center, about 30 minutes. Heat the marinara sauce in a saucepan over low heat. Bring to a simmer, and place the baked meatballs in the marinara sauce for about 2 minutes.
