Image via Wikipedia

Our Sunday Italiano feast today! 🙂

1 lb lean ground beef

1/2 lb ground pork

4 cloves of garlc diced

3/4 cup Italian bread crumbs ( I use pank0 or brown rice bread crumbs or I use 3 -4 slices of whole wheat bread and tear small pieces into the bowl)

1/2 cup reduced fat grated parmesean cheese

salt and pepper

1 tbsp Italian Seasoning ( fresh is best…parsley, basil and oregano)

1 egg

In a large mixing bowl put all ingredients into the bowl. Mix well with hands. Form into medium-large size balls. Place on broiler pan to catch all the drippings which will decrease your fat intake! Bake in oven at 350 for 40 min. Heat sauce on stove top. ( I use 3 cans of Italian Crushed tomatoes and add in fresh Italian herbs) Place meatballs in sauce ,cover and lower heat to a simmer. Simmer for about 25mins. Serve over whole grain pasta with sauce and additional Parmesan cheese!
