Tomato puree is a thick sauce of pureed, briefly cooked tomatoes. It has been strained of seeds and skins and doesn't include any additional seasoning or herbs. It is like a blank slate for you to add your own personal touches!

One of my dad tricks is to grate zucchini and squeeze it dry to hide in meatballs. This recipe did well in helping me to sneak squash onto my kids' plates. I normally make them smaller and bake to get them done quickly. The boys loved the larger meatballs I was able to get in a similar amount of time thanks to the pressure cooker. They were also more tender than what I often get out of the oven. Terrific, all around. Great on subs or pasta.

SO SO delicious! I ended up making a ton of these and eat way more that I should have in one sitting. They were even better as leftovers when added to sliced fresh lasagna noodles. Great recipe!

These turkey meatballs are so good! Definitely comparable to or better than what I would get at a restaurant. They taste really good over pasta, and also with spiralized zucchini noodles. In love with this recipe and my pressure cooker!

These are really good meatballs, but I especially loved the quick and simple tomato sauce. I prefer this recipe to store bought tomato sauce because it doesn't have all the added sugar. Definitely plan to make these again, it was very delicious.

I was looking for a healthy turkey recipe and came across these meatballs. They were really good! I've had a couple pressure cooker fails with some other recipes, but this recipe were perfect. I served it with the really wide pappardelle noodles as shown in the picture, fantastic.

It was very easy to make but the sauce had very little flavor. I added fresh basil and Italian seasoning to the leftovers.

I can my own spaghetti sauce every year. Would I be able to use a quart of that instead?
