Default Meatballs and Pasta Sauce?

My dad is part Italian and loves to cook Italian food.So one thing I was wondering is if I can have meatballs and tomato sauce?My dad can make me meatballs without any breadcrumbs, it would just be ground beef, eggs, and onion and his sauce he makes is just tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, and basil.So would it be okay to eat this?Because I love Italian food!lol.

It sounds ok to me! Only twice a week though since tomatoes are on the occasional list of veggies, and make sure it's lean ground beef. Sounds delicious!

I have had meatballs and red sauce several times - either I use a homemade tomato sauce so I know there's no hidden sugar or filler, or I use LizRR's red pepper puree recipe from the Fun With Veggie Purees thread. Both are very tasty!

I frequently make meatballs with no breadcrumbs and serve with a red pepper sauce (I just avoid tomatoes for the most part). The sauce could easily take italian seasonings for a marinara flavor -- I would add fresh basil.

Here's my recipe: http://www.unlimitedlettuce.com/2013...asted-red.html

I actually had a little meatball making party with myself yesterday and rolled 15 lbs of them. I froze into meal portions in ziplocs and now we are set for a weekly meatball night for a while!!

LOL! Bulk cooking must have been in the air....last Thursday I did a big bulk session and made 14 dinners and enough P3 breakfast entrees for two weeks! All chicken and pork because that was what was on sale, but I am going to need to do meatballs and taco meat soon!!!

I've used lean ground beef with lean ground pork, garlic, basil, oregano, an egg, red pepper flake, ground black pepper, and salt.

I browned them in a pan on all sides then put them in a baking dish. I used tomato sauce (not spaghetti sauce) and let them finish baking in an oven. It was delish!

Oh, and I had "zoodles" instead of pasta. (Zuchinni shredded lengthwise to make faux noodles.)

Hey ladies, you can use one of the restricted chips crushed up as meatball filler if you need. I used the cheddar ones in my meatloaf and that was THE BEST THING EVAH.
