      Hands down the best meatballs I've ever had in my life. No kidding! I can't believe how good it tastes. I served it for some coworkers last night and they told it was the first thing they thought about when they woke up this morning. Lol. I used Zesto Pesto for this recipe. I made extra and just put it on the pasta. So simple and so great tasting. Thank you very much for sharing this one of a kind mouthful of deliciousness.

      Great taste and a breeze to throw together in a hurry. I halved the recipe and got 24 healthy-sized meatballs. They held together well during the rolling and stuffing. Mine were dead ready after 15 minutes of convection baking time. Even though I liberally sprayed my baking pan, sticking was a real issue. I was surprised considering the oil in the pesto and my generous EVOO drizzle but so is the nature of cooking ground turkey. We ate a some for dinner alongside Simple Penne Alla Vodka and I froze the rest as part of my planned leftovers campaign. (Cooking for 2 is a PITA!) These meatballs will be a welcome addition to future meals. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

      I actually made this using ground chicken, this mixture needed more than 1 cup to hold together, I did increase the garlic and used seasoned salt and added in black pepper, with change from turkey to chicken this recipe it turned out great, I am going to try it with turkey next time, thanks for sharing!...Kitten :)
