Spaghetti with meatballs

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb 93/7 lean ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup of bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup of diced onion, cooked until soft
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh parsley
  • 1oz of grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp each of salt and pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a small saucepan cook the onions until they are soft and tender. Let them cool.
  3. Mix together onion, bread crumbs, garlic, egg, cheese, salt, pepper and parsley in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add in ground beef and mix gently until combined. Do not overwork. Form into 1-inch balls and place on prepared cookie sheet.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until meatballs are browned and cooked through.

NOTES

Makes 20 meatballs
1 meatball is 1 smart point

I like these meatballs better without the onions added but if you like onions feel free to add those to the recipe. You can sub 1/2 tsp of onion powder.
