1/1 Photo of New Mama's Meatballs
Because I'm a new Mama! These meatballs are fantastic in an Italian red sauce with pasta or on their own. I like the fact that they are made in the oven because it's less of a mess. When my husband has been a very good boy I make him these meatballs. Hope you enjoy. Please let me know. Thanks!
