Meatballs with Marinara

My go to recipe for moist, delicious and flavorful meatballs. Meatballs are a classic recipe, perfect in soups, sandwiches, or pasta. It's also great as an appetizer or light meal served with a salad and some bread to dip in homemade marinara sauce.

I usually make meatballs with beef and pork for the perfect blend of flavors but you can use your favorite ground meat or combo of ground meats.

I used Parmesan cheese, herbs and served with marinara sauce for Italian flavors, but you can substitute with your favorite cheese, spices, herbs or sauce to match the flavors of your dish.
