Description

Ground beef is the base for these Italian-style meatballs. A light tomato sauce is accented with bell peppers and onions for a flavor-packed accent. The meatballs are flavored with garlic and a little bit of parmesan cheese for the perfect hearty and savory bite. You can serve the meatballs and sauce over some fried potatoes, a bowl of al dente pasta, or turn them into a meatball sub with a little bit of provolone cheese.
