Ingredients

 
One day my wife was looking through a food magazine and came across a recipe for meatball sliders. She decided she wanted to make them with ground turkey instead of beef. Her love of pesto quickly became a substitute for the marinara in the meatball sliders.  She originally made them with frozen turkey meatballs, which to me was taking the lazy way out. But that’s my wife, she likes quick and easy recipes.  They were pretty tasty but I decided to make my own meatballs from scratch.  Needless to say, she prefers when I make them from scratch because they do taste better than the frozen stuff.

These are a great spin on a marinara meatball sandwich, I love the ground turkey with the pesto sauce. The meatballs are fantastic.
