This recipe makes enough tender meatballs and tangy sauce for two dinners. Have sandwiches one night and freeze the remainder to serve over pasta.
Fresh bread crumbs keep these lean meatballs tender, but dry can be used in a pinch. For an even consistency, mix meatballs using your hands or a fork.
These meatballs are a hit from toddler to teenager. And once you see how easy they are to make, you'll never reach for frozen again.
To keep meat from sticking to your fingers, wet your hands before forming the balls. Make sure to pack the meat firmly.
This crowd-pleasing soup is chock-full of healthy vegetables and flavorful meatballs. Leftovers make hearty, satisfying lunches.
These flavorful balls also make a terrific vegetarian appetizer. Use a fork to gently pry them from the baking pan.
