Delicious Meatballs

Super easy, super tasty meatball #recipe

½ pound lean ground beef
½ pound ground pork
â…“ cup plain dry bread crumbs
¼ cup finely chopped onion
¼ cup (1-ounce) Parmesan cheese, grated
1 egg, lightly beaten
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix ingredients just until blended. Shape into 30 or so 1-inch balls and place in single layer in a lightly greased rimmed baking pan.
Bake 12-14 minutes or until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle.
You may now use them in any recipe that calls for meatballs but I recommend pairing it with this super easy marinara recipe.

1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 (15.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon salt
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium bell pepper, chopped
½ teaspoon garlic powder
A good shake of dried red pepper flakes
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and heat over medium heat until boiling. Add meatballs, if using, and reduce heat to simmer, uncovered, for about 30 minutes or until desired thickness. Adjust seasonings (salt and pepper) and serve over hot pasta.
