Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Trim about 1 inch from one side of each pita pocket and arrange onto prepared sheet.
  3. Roll sausage into 32 small meatballs.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Fry meatballs in skillet until completely browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Drain meatballs on a plate lined with paper towel.
  5. Stir pasta sauce, onion, and cream cheese together in a saucepan over medium heat; cook, stirring regularly until onion is tender, 7 to 10 minutes.
  6. Transfer meatballs to a large mixing bowl; add 1 cup of the pasta sauce mixture and mozzarella cheese. Mix until the meatballs are coated in sauce and cheese.
  7. Gently stuff pita pockets with meatball mixture using a small spoon.
  8. Bake stuffed pita pockets in preheated oven until heated through and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.
  9. Serve pockets with remaining sauce for dipping.

We enjoyed this recipe. Easy to make for a quick dinner and was very tasty. I accidentally added the whole amount of sauce to the meatballs, so after fishing them out with a spoon to stuff the pita, I used the cheesy sauce for dipping, instead of plain sauce. It was a nice addition!
