Recipe by BETHANY T.
READY IN: 55mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees f. Mix together all meatball ingredients. If mixture seems too loose, add more breadcrumbs. (Mixture will be very moist.).
  • Spray a baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray.
  • Roll meatballs into golfball sized balls.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes.
  • While meatballs are baking, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  • Saute onions until soft. Add garlic and saute until onions start to brown.
  • Add Tomatoes, salt and pepper. Add some red pepper flakes if desired. Simmer for about 20 minutes.
  • Adjust seasonings.
  • Stir in basil.
  • I like to add the meatballs to the finished sauce so that the flavors can meld.
  • If you are using the meatballs only for sandwiches, you can halve the sauce recipe, but if you want sauce for pasta, use full recipe.
