Number of Servings: 6


    1lb ground beef
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    10oz frozen spinach, thawed & drained
    2 slices low point bread *I used both sides of a sandwich thin, it's what I had on hand
    1 egg
    1 clove garlic, minced
    2 Tbsp parsley
    1/2 cup parmesan cheese
    s & p to taste


Wet bread & mash it up with your hands. Combine with beef, spinach, egg, garlic, parsley, grated cheese & s&p. Mix well. Using 1/4 cup measuring cup, measure meat & divide into 2 1/8 cup meatballs. Roll into ball.

Heat the oil in a pan on low. When hot, add meatballs & cook on low, turning often. When fully cooked blot on paper towel covered plate.

I then threw the meatballs into a small pot of sauce that I had simmering. Cut open italian bread, topped it with 5 meatballs, 1/4 cup shredded mozz cheese & baked 6 mins at 350.

**NI for the bread & mozz cheese not included**

Number of Servings: 6
