So today, we’re going to make:
Meatballs Braised in Sun-dried Tomato Pesto
I actually got this idea from the Le Grand website. On the site, Le Grand had a recipe for burgers made with sun-dried tomato pesto, which looked really good. I think the combination of hamburger and sun-dried tomato pesto sounds absolutely fantastic in any form, so I came up with this meatball recipe. Instead of putting the pesto in the meatballs, though, I put it in the sauce and then infuse the meatballs with the sun-dried tomato pesto flavor by braising them.
You will need:
- 1 pound ground hamburger
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon salt and black pepper
- 1/2 cup Le Grand sun-dried tomato pesto
- 1 12.5 oz can tomato sauce
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, mix the hamburger, bread crumbs, egg, salt, and pepper until the ingredients are well incorporated. Roll the meat mixture into 1 inch balls and put them into a baking dish.
In a second bowl, mix the Le Grand sun-dried tomato pesto and tomato sauce. Pour into the baking dish and bake for 30 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through.
Serve with pasta and enjoy!
