DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 425°.
  • In a bowl, combine the ground chicken, bread crumbs, shallots, parmesan cheese, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper to taste.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes for easier handling.
  • Form the mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls (use floured hands).
  • Place the meatballs on a lightly sprayed or oiled baking sheet and bake until lightly browned and firm, about 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the sauce-in a large Dutch oven over medium heat, warm the oil.
  • Add in the onions, mushrooms, and garlic; saute until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, and seasonings.
  • Simmer, uncovered, 5-10 minutes longer.
  • Add the meatballs to the sauce and simmer, covered, until the flavors are blended, about 10 minutes longer.
  • Serve with the pasta and sprinkle with more Parmesan.
