How to Make Italian Meatballs

In a sauce pan, heat up some sauce, at least 4 cups worth.

These will be cooked in the sauce. I save some aside when I make a big batch for spaghetti.

Add bread crumbs or cracker crumbs.
I used whole wheat bread crumbs...slipping in extra nutrition.

Add a couple eggs.

Throw in two tablespoons Italian seasoning, two teaspoons garlic salt and one-half teaspoon black pepper.

These are not exact measurements, adjust to your taste.
You could also add chopped onion and bell pepper.

Mix thoroughly with your hands.

Make golf ball size meatballs.

Add meatballs to hot sauce. Keep on low heat.

Cover pot.

Do not stir until the outsides of the meatballs have cooked some, about 20 minutes,
otherwise they may fall apart.
Simmer for a couple hours.
Skim off grease before serving.

Serve on a piece of whole wheat bread.
You can also add some Parmesan cheese to the top.
Serve with a salad and you have a complete meal.
