Expert Tips

  • These meatballs are also good served with dipping sauces instead of with spaghetti. Try barbecue or sweet-and-sour sauce, or heated marinara sauce or your favorite tomato pasta sauce.
  • If your kids are super picky, finely grate or chop the vegetables so they aren’t visible.
  • Baked meatballs can be frozen. Place cooled meatballs in a single layer on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer. Once they’re frozen, transfer meatballs to a resealable food-storage freezer plastic bag and store in the freezer.
