Who doesn't love meatballs?! Honestly they are truly a wonderful invention and the human race has known this for a long time.

Netflix and meatballs anyone?
FOR THE MEATBALLS
- 15 oz of ground meat
(it can be beef but 1/2 pork and 1/2 beef will make a moister meatball)
- 2 oz of grated parmesean cheese
- 3 oz of sandwich bread crumbs
(just blend a slice or two of sliced white bread in the food processor to get some moist crumbs)
- 1 to 2 fresh eggs
- Olive oil as needed
Optional: Finely grated zucchini or carrot or cabbage
(you will have to adjust the amount of eggs and bread to get the right consistency of "meat dough")
FOR THE SAUCE
- Enough of your favorite tomato sauce to lightly submerge your meatballs
(usually about 15 oz of sauce depending on the size and shape of your pot or slow-cooker)
- 1 small yellow onion
- Olive oil
- Salt to taste
- Frozen peas to taste
