Meatballs Parmesan

Meatballs Parmesan – You can buy ready made meatballs already cooked and frozen in the store if you  want to. Just thaw them out in the microwave per the instructions on the bag before you use them.  I like to make our own and keep them in the freezer. Here’s my mom’s recipe if you want to give it a go. You can buy Marinara Sauce in the store but if you want to make your own and keep some on hand here is our recipe for Marinara sauce. It will  last for 2-3 weeks in the fridge or 6 months to a year in the freezer.

Put 2 or 3 meatballs in individual casserole dishes or enough for everybody in a large casserole dish. Add some marinara and roll the meatballs around in it.

Spread just a few dabs of sauce all over the cheese. Lightly drizzle with extra virgin olive oil then lightly sprinkle dried oregano and grated parmesan cheese.

Bake until the sauce in the bottom of the dish is bubbling, about 8-10 minutes. Then serve up your Meatballs Parmesan topped with a little more grated parmesan cheese.

Tonight’s homemade bread was two loaves of Bastone that we dipped in the sauce more than we did in the olive oil.

And since we had some Marinara on hand we cooked up some fettuccine and topped it with some of the sauce.

A good Italian Sangiovese or Barbera d’asti would be a perfect wine with your Meatballs Parmesan.
