Another Carb Options Recipe
1/2 small white onion
2 cloves garlic
2 T. olive oil
1 lb. ground sirloin
2 T. grated parmesan cheese
1 T. dijon mustard (check ingredients for no sugar)
1 1/2 T. dried parsley
1 1/2 t. dried oregano
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. ground black pepper
1 jar (26 oz) Carb Options Garden Style sauce (or another no-sugar-added pasta sauce)
1 8 oz. pkg fat-free mozzarella cheese
1. Preheat the oven to 350. In a food processor or mini-chopper, chop onion and garlic medium to fine. In an 8-inch skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and cook onion mixture, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until onion is translucent. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
2. In a large bowl, combine onion mixture with remaining ingredients except the pasta sauce and cheese. Shape into 20 (2 inch) meatballs.
3. In a 13 X 9-inch baking dish, arrange the meatballs. Bake 25 minutes; pour sauce over meatballs, then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until meatballs are thoroughly cooked. Remove from over and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
This makes GREAT leftovers for lunch the next day. DH thought this might have to go on the top of his favorite dinner list.
