Pesto Zucchini Meatballs

Pesto Zucchini Meatballs

“Healthy” Meatballs usually end up dry, flavorless… and not something the family is excited to load up on. One of my favorite ways to spice up my meatballs is by adding Pesto. Pesto packs a flavorful punch! Try serving with your favorite grain pasta, or save some macros by trying half pasta, half zoodles … or all zoodles! These meatballs are also great slathered in marinara on a meatball sandwich. Hope you love!
