Once the Fall weather hits all I can think of is COMFORT food. Riley is a huge fan of pasta so I try to give it an added twist each time we have it. I also make sure that the pasta is whole wheat. My new favorite is to sneak in the vegetable pasta so that Riley and Joe don’t notice their getting an extra serving of vegetables. I absolutely love the combination of blue cheese and garlic in these meatballs. They are positively addicting!
These meatballs are super, easy to make and they look amazing when they are cooked and browned. The ground turkey in these meatballs makes the meatballs difficult to form because of the consistency of ground turkey, which is why a muffin tin works perfectly and it makes clean up speedy!
I promise you will not be disappointed! They’d work really well as a mini meatball appetizer as well.
