Meatballs barley pesto, fresh, good, tasty, yummy and crispy
Ricetta: Secondo piatto
150 g of pearl barley
1 bay leaf
1 small tomato
2 tablespoons pesto (I made at home)
70 g breadcrumbs
extra virgin olive oil to taste
salt to taste
Soak in warm water barley (unless it is written on the package that it is not necessary)
Rinse well and boil in salted water with a broken tomato, 1 carrot and a bay leaf.
Cook about 30 minutes, until cooked, drain and remove the tomato carrot and bay leaf.
Place in a bowl, drizzle with two tablespoons of pesto, combine the egg and bread crumbs.
Shape into balls and roll in breadcrumbs.
Grease a baking sheet with oil, place the balls and cook in the oven at 200 g for 20 minutes, turning them over.
They will be ready when it will be well flushed.
ps: These are are approximately for 10 meatballs, depending on the size you want to give.
I didn’t intentionally wanted to add grated cheese because there is already enough in pesto. Just breadcrumbs and will be tasty!
Good peaceful weekend to everybody!
I close my week here which was really heavy! byebye
