Turkey Meatballs, Homemade Marinara & Pesto Bread Twist

May 3, 2017


I am so excited to be sharing this cooking video with you!  After a long day of work in the studio sewing up a storm....I needed to unwind in the kitchen.  Cooking relaxes me and puts me in another mind space of pure enjoyment.  And the other night I made a meal that was so incredibly delicious I could have eaten it for a week straight.  But of course when you live in the house with grown men, that is only a dream!  I'm one that LOOOOOVVVVVEEES  leftovers but this meal barely made it to the next day.  I guess that how you know it hit the spot!


I made turkey meatballs packed with fresh herbs in a homemade marinara sauce, paired it with pesto fettichini and followed it with what my son calls "green bread" which is a pesto bread twist!  SOOOO GOOD!!!  At I will be covering it all in the video below.


Here are the basic ingredients that you will need.



-fresh thyme

-fresh rosemary

-fresh oregano


-red onions




-panko bread crumbs

-olive oil



-tomato puree

-red onions


-bell peppers (I used a mix of red, orange, yellow and green)

-portabello mushrooms

-fresh thyme

-fresh rosemary

-fresh oregano


-dry basil

-dry parsley


-bay leaf

-balsamic vinegar

-red wine vinegar



-olive oil


Pesto Pasta:

-fettichini noodles


-heavy cream

-milk (I used unsweetened cashew milk)

-pesto (store bought or homemade -recipe coming soon!)

-lemon juice



Pesto Bread Twist:

-pizza dough (store bought or homemade - recipe coming soon!)



As usual I encourage you not to get hung up on the measurements, rather than to taste as much as you can all along..... Once I started to do this, my cooking elevated and became way more flavorful.  I hope you enjoy cooking with me!!


If you make this yummy dish, let me know how your's turned out!




*I've been asked by several people about the infused oils that I have used.  I received a gift set from my mother from a company called O'lilve a Little.  They are based out of Connecticut but they ship all over!  Today I used two of their products in this video, the italian herb infused olive oil and red wine vinegar (which I can't seem to find on their website, but I'm sure if you called them they can hook you up!)
