Italian Pita Pockets

I have no idea what to make for dinner tonight – sound familiar?! LOL

I knew I had some meatballs in the freezer, a green pepper, a medium onion, some leftover stuffed pepper sauce, cheese and pitas in the fridge, so here is what I came up with and it actually turned out so good! Since we already had the meatballs made, it only took like 20 minutes from start to finish {my kind of dinner!!!🀘}  Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

These ingredients are based on 2 servings.


  • 10 meatballs
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 medium onion
  • Approx 1/4 cup plain tomato sauce or leftover stuffed pepper sauce if you have it😊
  • Mozzarella cheese (1/4 cup)
  • Whole grain pitas (2)
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (2 tsp)


Drizzle 2 teaspoons of EVOO in frying pan, turn heat to medium. While the pan heats up, you can slice the pepper and onions – placing in the pan after a couple minutes. 


Saute for approx 15 minutes. Add the sauce and meatballs to the mixture (I crumbled my meatballs to fit in the pita easier) and let everything simmer for a few minutes.


Place the mozzarella cheese on top of the mixture.


Let cheese melt for a couple minutes.


Cut the pitas in half and stuff. Any leftovers you may have can just be eaten with a fork.


Please note, you do not have to use meatballs for this recipe, ground meat would work just as fine, we just always have meatballs on hand in the freezer so we used those!
