These turkey rissoles with pesto are stuffed with a wee chunk of mozzarella cheese. They can be eaten alone or served as meatballs on top of spaghetti.
Awesome recipe! My entire family begs me to make this! I have found that wrapping the meat around the mozzarella ball is easier than stuffing it in though. Definitely a fantastic family favorite - 24 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These are really great, and they're even better the next day in a meatball sandwich! I axed the mozzarella in the middle (watching calories), and I don't keep pesto around, so I used olive oil and a bit more garlic. Next time I'll omit the salt; with the sodium in the marinara, I think that the addition of the salt in the recipe is unnecessary. - 24 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
To cut back on calories, I used fresh basil from my garden, eggbeaters, and no olive oil. I cubed low fat string cheese instead of fresh mozz. - 24 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
