Giant Turkey Meatball Parmesan

This creation is a result of asking my husband what he wants for dinner. Tommy doesn’t care about eating light, so naturally he comes up with some decadent ideas, and because I love a challenge I had to make it work – the results, he LOVED it!

I created this recipe in partnership with Delallo Foods. You’ve probably heard me talk about them before, I love working with them because I really love their products. For instance, I was a jarred marinara sauce snob (hey, I live in NY!) before I tried their jarred Pomodoro Fresco sauce. A had a jar to sample and reluctantly used it one night when I didn’t have time to cook. I was hooked, even my Italian husband approves so now I always keep a few jars on hand. Using their jarred sauce makes this SO quick and easy to prep. Although it takes a little time to bake in the oven, you’re freed up to do other things while it cooks.

A few tips to make this perfect, don’t overwork the meat when mixing and when you form your giant meatball you want to make it a little flat on top so the sauce and cheese doesn’t roll off. We enjoyed this with a big salad, hope you love it as much as we do!
