Meatball Marinara Pita Pocket

Since we have been packing and moving this past week, I needed something fast and easy, that also tasted great. I usually make my own meatballs, but I found some lean turkey italian seasoned meatballs at the store that were on sale and decided to try them. Yum! I bought marinara sauce and added a can of beans, then pureed it so there were no big pieces of tomato (for my husband) and no visible sign of beans (for my daughter). Add some shredded zucchini to the sauce and you have got a great, healthy, fast dinner.

Meatball Marinara Pita Pocket

12 lean turkey meatballs with Italian seasoning
1 jar marinara sauce
1-15 oz can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini
4-6 pitas, cut in half
shredded mozzarella cheese
Place sauce and beans in blender and puree. Put sauce into a large skillet and add meatballs and zucchini. Heat until warm over medium heat. Cut meatballs in half (makes it easier to eat). Open a pita half and spoon a few meatball halves and sauce into the pita. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and serve.
