How to Make It

Step 1

Heat toaster oven to 350° F. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the oil over the oven’s baking tray and tilt to coat.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine the beef, bread crumbs, ½ cup of the pesto, egg, 1 ½ teaspoons salt, and ¾ teaspoon pepper. With your hands, mix just until combined. Shape into 12 meatballs, using about ¼ cup of the mixture for each.

Step 3

Transfer the meatballs to the tray. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn and bake until cooked through, about 10 minutes more.

Step 4

Meanwhile, prepare the couscous according to the package directions.

Step 5

In a small bowl, combine the remaining ¼ cup pesto and 1 tablespoon oil. Spoon over the cooked meatballs and turn to coat.

Step 6

Divide the meatballs and couscous among plates and sprinkle with the Parmesan (if desired).
