  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a sheet pan.
  2. Combine turkey, bread crumbs, pesto, Pecorino Romano cheese, egg, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl and mix with your hands until well combined.
  3. Roll mixture into small, walnut-sized meatballs. Place onto the prepared pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the centers, 20 to 25 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use grated Parmesan instead of Pecorino Romano.
  • For a delicious variation, you can use a red sun-dried tomato pesto instead of basil pesto.

These meatballs were phenomenal! I’m excited to try them with the sun dried tomato pesto too. I made the recipe as is. Thank you for a fantastic recipe!
