Cubes of mozzarella are tucked inside turkey meatballs seasoned with onion, garlic and pesto. The stuffed meatballs are baked in the oven, then finished in a pan with tomato pasta sauce. I came up with this recipe for a recipe competition and it's been a family favourite ever since. Serve with your choice of pasta.
Awesome recipe! My entire family begs me to make this! I have found that wrapping the meat around the mozzarella ball is easier than stuffing it in though. Definitely a fantastic family favorite - 24 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These are really great, and they're even better the next day in a meatball sandwich! I axed the mozzarella in the middle (watching calories), and I don't keep pesto around, so I used olive oil and a bit more garlic. Next time I'll omit the salt; with the sodium in the marinara, I think that the addition of the salt in the recipe is unnecessary. - 24 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
To cut back on calories, I used fresh basil from my garden, eggbeaters, and no olive oil. I cubed low fat string cheese instead of fresh mozz. - 24 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
