Pesto Meatballs

Ingredients 

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, finely diced
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup pesto, homemade or store-bought
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
To serve:
  • Marinara sauce
  • Pasta
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
OR
  • Extra pesto
  • Pasta
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil
Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl with your hands. Make sure it's worked in well. Make 1-2" wide balls in the palm of your hand. Place formed balls in the prepared baking pan. 

Place in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Remove from oven. Either place the meatballs in marinara sauce and serve over pasta with Parmesan cheese. Or mix pasta with olive oil, salt and pepper, then top with a little extra pesto and meatballs.
