Make meatballs in larger batches and freeze them for a fast and easy homemade meal in minutes. Having one-two meatballs with a side of sliced tomatoes may be a healthier and more satiating snack than other options lurking in your pantry. I typically double the recipe at the very least, and use ground turkey most of the time.
Mix all ingredients until well blended. Not too smooth because you do not want them too dense. Roll into medium size balls- about 1.5 inches round. You can pan cook, but I prefer the easy and less messy route by placing them on a canola oil wiped cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes. Roll over once 1/2 way during cooking. Make sure they are cooked through.
It is wintertime and comfort foods are in. Try this recipe and add a salad on the side. This is simple and a crowd and kid pleaser. Top with marinara or a meat sauce, whichever you prefer. Once you make this, the variations are endless!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Marinara Sauce in jar or make your own (we like a no meat sauce on these)
Cook shells per package instructions. Mix all other ingredients in a bowl and stuff shells. Spread marinara sauce over the pasta shells, sprinkle with parmesan cheese (also mozzarella if you like) and bake in a covered casserole about 25 minutes or until heated through.
My passion and purpose is helping each person reach their full potential and optimal health through healthy habits and sustainable behavior change.
