Pesto does double duty in these yummy meatballs. Add some to the ground meat mixture, then simmer the meatballs in chicken broth and pesto for an extra herby kick.



  1. In a bowl, mix the turkey with the breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup pesto, the milk and grated Parmesan; form into small balls.
  2. Heat a thin layer of olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the meatballs until just browned, then add the chicken broth and remaining 1/4 cup pesto and simmer until cooked through. Stir in the heavy cream and simmer until the sauce is slightly thickened.
