Here is what you’ll need for the meatballs:
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup panko crumbs (or breadcrumbs if you have them)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon parsley
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
To complete the meal:
- Spinach fettuccine noodles, or any pasta of choice
- Pasta sauce
- 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1/2 cup mushrooms
- Parmesan cheese
Before you begin, preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
Now combine EVERYTHING into a bowl and mix thoroughly with your hands. Then roll meatballs to the size slightly larger than a golf ball — or however big you desire, and put them on a greased cookie sheet and into the oven for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile… chop up some red bell peppers and mushrooms & sauté, heat up your pasta sauce (I used Ragu sundries tomato and basil), and get your pasta boiling (I used spinach fettuccine noodles).
Yep, lots of multi-tasking happening right now.
Once your meatballs are done, take them out of the oven to cool for a minute or two. Then dish up!
I chopped up some basil and sprinkled parmesan cheese as the finishing touches. Voila, enjoy!
