Freezer Friendly

All you need is to store cooked and cooled meatballs in an airtight container or a storage bag. These healthy Italian Meatballs can freeze beautifully for a couple of months.

 

Tip: To prevent meatballs from sticking to each other due to the moisture, you can place them on a sheet pan or a plate and freeze them for a couple hours with room between each meatball. Then take them off of the plate and throw them in a container or bag.

First of all, wash, dry and chop all the veggies. I recently updated this recipe – 

Saute the veggies before mixing into the meatballs will help bring out the aromatic even more.

Second, mix ground meat with veggies and seasoning by hand. Either use a cookie dough scooper or roll the ground meat mixture in to balls by hand.

Third, roast in the oven at 425 F. High temperature will help the meatballs stay moist, tender inside, and yet charred and crispy on the outside.

While the meatballs are cooking in the oven, we will make the easy creamy tomato sauce. All you need is a jar of your favorite marinara sauce and canned coconut milk. The creamy and sweet coconut milk balance out the acidity in the tomato sauce. It is my favorite creamy tomato sauce.

Lastly, mix the meatballs with sauce and serve with your favorite pasta and vegetables.

You will need:

1 Jar of your favorite Marinara Sauce

1/2 cup coconut milk

1/4 cup chopped mushroom

 

Bring all the ingredients to boil in a small pot, and simmer until mushroom is soft.

The sweetness of the coconut milk complements the acidity from the marinara sauce so well.

Best Combo.

Ever.

Notes

  1. When combining meatballs, do not overmix. Otherwise meatballs will tend to dry out during the cooking process.
  2. Using a Cast Iron Skillet will make the meatballs extra crispy on the outside while remaining juicy on the inside.
