Delicious meatball recipe, easy, healthy and perfect for the whole family. This dish is packed with flavor and can be on the table in no time. I like to serve it over whole wheat pasta with a simple tomato sauce, but it would be just as good with rice or quinoa. You can even get creative and add vegetables to the sauce to make it even more nutritious.

Either way, this dish is sure to please the whole family. Delicious, easy and healthy – what more could you ask for? Enjoy your lunch!
