Meatballs and Chicken Sausage

Mix together 1lb of lean ground pork and lean ground sirloin, 1 egg, 2 tbsp Italian Seasoning, salt and pepper, 1.3 cup fresh grated Parmesan, 1 tsp nutmeg, 2 slices of whole wheat bread picked into small pieces, 3 cloves of garlic minced..Form into meatballs and place on broiler pan, drizzle with olive oil and bake for 30 min at 350 degrees. Place in slow cooker with sauce, cover and cook low for about 4 hours.

I bought these beautiful italian Chicken Sausages with Fennel at Joesph’s Classic Market ( where I buy all my meats, fish and produce..so fresh and inexpensive) , that I also placed in a separate baking dish, pierced with a knife and baking along with the meatballs. When sausages done cooking slice into 1-2 inch pieces and throw them into the sauce.

I am “semi” baking the meatballs and chicken sausage, so that I can put them in a Slow Cooker or Crock Pot with sauce and cook on low for about 4 hours to incorporate all the flavors….

I also bought these nests of whole wheat linguine, which i will just add to boiling water later to cook the rest of the way..And of course extra Parmesan cheese.
