Turkey Pesto Meatballs


This meatball recipe is SO EASY! You can make it with ground turkey, chicken, or beef.

I used the perfect dairy free pesto sauce in this recipe! Victoria Vegan has mastered the dairy free pesto. Its made with cashew and coconut creme and its full of flavor!

If you are like my brother and don’t like pesto, you can substitute the pesto in this recipe with your favorite salad dressing like ranch or caesar.

By broiling instead of baking these, they get nice and golden brown without being overcooked!

These meatballs would go great with regular pasta, zucchini spirals, or spaghetti squash!
