Got this recipe from Family Circle, but instead of using ground chicken, I tried it with beef and added olives.  Turned out yummy, so here, I’m sharing the recipe with you. I’m sure your kids will love the meatballs.

Ingredients:

Procedure:

1.  Heat oven to 375°.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and place a baking rack over it; coat rack with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

2.  In a large bowl, combine bread pieces and milk and let stand for 5 minutes or until bread softens.  Mash with fork until a paste forms.  Add beef, Parmesan, 2 tablespoons of the parsley and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and stir until evenly mixed.

3.  With clean hands kept wet with water, shape mixture into thirty 1 1/2-inch meatballs.  Place meatballs on prepared rack and bake at 375° for 24 minutes.

4.  While meatballs are cooking, make sauce.  Heat oil in a nonstick medium-size skillet over medium heat.  Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Add tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, Itlian seasoning and black pepper and increase heat to medium-high.  Cook for about 15 minutes.  Stir in remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and 2 tablespoons parsley.

5.  Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain and reserve 1/2 cup pasta water.  Transfer pasta to a large serving bowl and top with meatballs.  Stir pasta water into sauce and spoon sauce on top of pasta and meatballs.
