I was really craving meatballs and tomato sauce last night, so I thought I'd share the recipe for today's Real Food Wednesday, hosted by Kelly the Kitchen Kop., found here: http://kellythekitchenkop.com/2010/10/real-food-wednesday-101310.html
So this is what I did:
1 lb pastured ground beef.
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 torpedo onions, chopped finely
2 cloves of garlic, choped finely
1 tablespoon of Italian Herb Mix, from Penzey's Spices
2 tablespoons almond meal
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
I mixed all of these ingredients up, formed it into balls, and cooked in olive oil and some tomato sauce. I could have browned them first, but I really wanted the tomato flavor to soak in. The almond meal kept the meatballs from being too sticky, so they kept their shape really nicely! I think it was in the pan for about 12 minutes total, plenty of time to get the pasta cooked!
I'd love to hear some feedback if you try the recipe!
