  1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients, blend with hands until combined.
  3. Shape into 1 inch balls.
  4. Brown in a skillet with just enough of the olive oil so that meat balls do not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  5. In 5-quart Dutch oven, over medium high heat, bring spaghetti sauce to a simmer.
  6. Add meatballs. Bring to boil. Partially cover and simmer 25 minutes or until meatballs are thoroughly cooked.

Very easy & simple Italian Meatball recipe - perfect putting together quickly with every day ingredients. I made these meatballs for recipe #320033, as I wanted to use homemade meatballs instead of frozen (I'm not a big fan of frozen meatballs).
