italian meatballs

Ohmygoodnesssogood. Been waiting to post a blog worthy recipe. I love to cook, but my camera phone picture taking abilities aren’t as good. I had a spaghetti squash that I needed to make, so I figured meatballs would compliment this very well.

What you need:

1 pound of ground beef
2 large carrots, diced
1/2 yellow or white onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
1 egg

What you need to do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Put ground beef in a large bowl. Using a food processor, dice each vegetable separately and add to bowl with ground beef.

Use hands to mix until well combined. Add salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning and continue to mix. Lastly, add egg and mix until everything is well combined.

Tastes great with spaghetti squash and tomato sauce. Enjoy!
