It’s no secret that I absolutely love pesto sauce. My Nana Lulu definitely made me that way because she used it a lot in her dishes. I’ve made several versions here on the blog because it’s so versatile. Anything from the market can become a yummy pesto sauce actually. So this week when I was trying to figure out what to do with my fresh zucchini, I made pesto with it! I paired it with juicy, flavorful turkey meatballs and tender pasta for a complete, lean and nutritious pasta dinner. Best of all, it was really simple to make.
Oh my goodness, my nana would have loved this take on meatballs with pesto. The meatballs were incredibly juicy and flavorful because of the panada. That pesto sauce was the star though. The roasted zucchini gave it such fantastic depth of flavor and texture. Hope you all enjoy this amazing, seasonal recipe as much as we did here at home! xoxo
