For an alternative to pasta, you can make my zucchini rollups as a side for these meatballs!
1 lb. hamburger, or ground meat of choice
2 cloves chopped garlic
salt & pepper, to taste
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 cup grated cheese
1/2 cup Italian flavored bread crumbs
additional garlic powder to taste
Preheat oven to 400F.
Mix ground meat, garlic, salt, pepper, parsley, cheese, egg, and bread crumbes together in a large bowl. If mixture is too wet, add more bread crumbs, a little at a time.
Roll into balls and place on sprayed cookie sheet.
Spray the top with more pam & season with salt, pepper & garlic powder.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes until brown.
Add to sauce the last hour.
