Beef and Quinoa Meatballs


These are some tasty meat-a-balls! I made a quick Pomodoro sauce to go with them.

1 lb ground beef
1 c cooked quinoa
3/4 c parmigiano-reggiano, grated
1 egg
1/2 c parsley, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper

pomodoro Sauce
28 oz can tomatoes, crushed
1/4 c olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced

Combine ingredients for Pomodoro sauce in a medium sauce pan, cook over low heat while making and cooking meatballs.

Preheat oven to 400. Spray a baking dish.

In a large bowl combine all the meatball ingredients with your hands. Form into 2 inch balls.

Bake 20 – 25 minutes.

Spoon sauce over the meatballs and sprinkle with cheese.

Makes about 12 meatballs.
