Description

Italian comfort food at its finest!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Lean Ground Beef
  • ½ cups Frozen Spinach, Defrosted, Drained, And Packed
  • 1  Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Basil
  • 2 teaspoons Minced Garlic
  • ½ teaspoons Red Pepper Flakes
  • ½ teaspoons Dried Oregano
  • ⅓ cups Bread Crumbs
  • 2 pieces (1 Oz. Size) String Cheeses, Each Cut Into 8 Pieces
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • ½ cups Wine
  • 24 ounces, fluid Jarred Tomato Sauce

Preparation

In a large bowl, combine the beef, spinach, egg, bail, minced garlic, red pepper flakes, oregano, and bread crumbs. Mix with your hands until everything is evenly combined. Be sure not to squish the meat too much with your fingers, otherwise the meatballs will be tough!

Take about 2 tablespoons of meat and flatted out into a disc. Place one of the pieces of string cheese in the center and fold the meat around the cheese, encapsulating it. Repeat with the remaining meat until you have made about 16 small meatballs.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and add the meatballs once hot. Brown the meatballs, about 2 minutes per side or until a caramelized brown color. Flip the meatballs to the other side to brown for another 2-3 minutes. Once evenly brown, deglaze the pan with the wine.

Turn the heat down to medium low and add the jar of tomato sauce. Cover and allow the meatballs to simmer in the sauce for 15-20 minutes. The meat should be cooked throughly and the cheese should be melted.

Serve over pasta and vegetables for a well rounded meal!
