Everyone wants to know how to make Italian Meatballs and this recipe is delicious, simple and sure to become a family favorite.
This recipe is definitely a Stafford Family Favorite. I love to make it during the winter, its a perfect winter comforts food, filling, satisfying and great to serve to a crowd.
We like it best on Sundays to enjoy while we watch football. It is easy to assemble and your whole house smells divine all day long.
I like to bake the meatballs versus frying them in a pan, to help cut back on the fat, without sacrificing flavor. I scoop the meatballs off the baking sheet when they are finished and add them to a big pot of marinara sauce and put it on a low simmer, just to keep everything warm. Then throughout the day friends and family can grab a plate to enjoy. This also adds a great flavor to the marinara because your meatballs release more juices into the sauce while simmering.
For a family dinner serve with a salad and a crunchy loaf of Italian bread.
The extra can be frozen for a second dinner. Great on pasta or on a Chunky piece of bread for a Hoagie, with a bit more of Parmesan cheese for a topping.
