Cooked quinoa punches up these juicy giant meatballs, which are flavored with Parmigiano cheese, parsley and garlic and cooked in marinara sauce. Slideshow: Perfect Meatballs
Preheat the oven to 400° and grease a large baking dish with olive oil. In a large bowl, using your hands, gently mix all of the remaining ingredients except the marinara sauce. Form the ground-beef mixture into twelve 2 1/2-inch meatballs.
Arrange the meatballs in the baking dish and roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until just cooked through. Spoon the marinara sauce on top and bake until the sauce is hot, about 5 minutes. Garnish with grated cheese and chopped parsley and serve.
This is my go-to meatball recipe. I even like it better than recipes made with breadcrumbs. I use more garlic, but that is a taste preference. The recipe is fantastic as is.
