Directions See How It's Made
- Prepare the Basil Tomato Sauce #447975 and have it cooking prior to preparing the meatballs.
- In a large bowl, combine all of the meatball ingredients just until mixed, do not overwork the meat.
- Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out the portions onto a tray, then roll the portions into even sized meatballs.
- Have your tomato sauce simmering on the stove, then drop in the prepared meatballs. Cook the meatballs for 20 minutes without stirring, making sure they are covered with tomato sauce. After 20 minutes, gently move the meatballs around and continue to simmer for a further 20 minutes, or until they are fully cooked.
