Turkey is the standout, show-stopper of Thanksgiving Day. This holiday staple is a ubiquitous reminder of the warmth and joy the season brings. Thus, this Baked Turkey Pesto Meatballs Recipe can be prepared for the Thanksgiving celebration, from the holiday leftovers, or just whip it up any time of the year. Adding to this holiday feel is a touch of comfort food, homey-ness that meatballs bring. Minced turkey could be made into yummy, healthier meatballs in place of its beef or pork counterpart. Minced chicken breast is a good option too.
Oh, the fabulous pesto sauce levels up these meatballs, exponentially! Another good news is that this recipe is simple and can be made after a long day. You just need a food processor or a blender to transform the greens into a fresh, rich paste, or pesto. There’s no wonder why there are many good reasons pesto gets all the hype.
The pesto sauce made mainly from the basil herb and pine nuts, mixed with olive oil, make this dish a nutritional powerhouse! Moreover, this is a gluten-free and low-fat recipe for weight loss or detox diet! What a guilt-free holiday (or, again, just any day) treat!
Plus, the pesto sauce can be kept in the freezer for 6 months! You can scoop out a few tablespoons any time you crave for something bright, herby, and savory. It’s so versatile that you can simply mix it with other recipes without thinking twice. Your creativity is the only limit!
