Quick and Easy Meatballs

Posted May 18, 2014 by Prairie Wife - 3 comments

I’ve mentioned before that The Cowboy loves anything with red sauce, but the constant rotations of spaghetti, ziti, and lasagna can get a Meatball Sublittle old. One thing that helps break it up are these quick and easy meatballs. I love to make a huge batch and use them in spaghetti, or my personal favorite-meatball subs. Another way I serve them is with sweet and sour sauce as a tasty appetizer at parties. With this big batch I usually have extras, and they freeze wonderfully. On busy days I just thaw the already cooked meatballs and use them to throw together a tasty, healthy meal in less than 30 minutes. I am a huge fan of grinding up squash and zucchini and adding a ½ cup of the puree to the recipe to sneakily add some extra veggies. I’ve also been known to add shredded cheese, finely chopped spinach and/or kale and onion to switch up the flavor!

What’s your favorite way to use meatballs in a recipe?
