Ingredients

    2 large egg , slightly beaten
    1 cup grated parmesan cheese
    2/3 cup breadcrumbs (or use enough to hold the meat together (no dry breadcrumbs? just soak 3 slices of bread in the 1/3 )
    2 tablespoon fresh minced garlic (or use 1 teaspoon garlic powder or to taste)

Directions

Directions:

1
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
2
Shape into small meatballs (at this point you can place on a jelly-roll/baking sheet and freeze to use later, or cover with plastic wrap refrigerate up to 24 hours before using).
3
Drop the meatballs into simmering pasta sauce, do not stir for at least 20 minutes or you will risk breaking the meatballs.
4
Continue cooking in the simmering sauce for another 20 minutes (depending on how fast your sauce is simmering 40 minutes total should fully cook the meatballs).
5
After the 40 minutes cooking time continue cooking your sauce with the meatballs in for as long as desired.
6
**note** you may also bake the meatballs at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes or until cooked through.
