Meatballs are one of our favorites. We don’t indulge often as they tend to be heavy and greasy. If you’re looking for a lighter, leaner alternative to meatballs made with beef, this recipe is a home run!
It’s the only meatball recipe I’ve ever seen that bakes the meatball rather than fries the meatball. The flavor is excellent with oregano and basil to enhance any dish, or serve alone.
