I took this amazing recipe from @theKitchn on Twitter. I did not make the homemade tomato sauce on the recipe since I make big batches of my own marinara sauce to freeze. I will one day do the whole recipe with the sauce listed. My 6-year old son, my husband and I LOVE these meatballs. I used store bought pesto and regular breadcrumbs, although I would use the panko next time (I thought I had some in my pantry). I also shaped my meatballs larger since I served them over pasta for my family.

1 pound ground turkey
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/3 cup pesto
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Mix the ground turkey, pesto, Parmesan, eggs, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper until just combined. Be careful not to over mix. Wet your hands and form meatballs (about 1 inch) and place on non-stick baking sheets (or baking sheets sprayed with non-stick cooking spray). Space meatballs evenly without crowding.
2. Bake until browned on the bottom, about 10 minutes. Turn using tongs and bake an additional 5-10 minutes or until browned on the other side. Remove from oven and gently place in pot with simmering sauce. Be sure meatballs simmer in sauce until cooked through, about 10-20 minutes.
3. Serve meatballs in sauce with toothpicks while warm.
