Easy Italian Meatballs

5 from 2 reviews

My kids love this Italian meatball recipe and devour the meatballs every time they’re served. Perfect with your favorite pasta and packed in school lunches!




  1. Preheat the oven to 375F and line a cookie sheet with a silicone mat.
  2. Chop the greens as finely as possible.
  3. Add all the ingredients to the bowl of a stand mixer and using the paddle attachment, mix until all everything is evenly distributed and mixed well. Alternatively, combine the ingredients in a large bowl and mix using your hands or a wooden spoon.
  4. Use a cookie scoop to evenly portion the meat mixture into balls and place the balls on the prepared cookie sheet. Gently roll each ball in your hand for about 5 seconds, just to create a uniform ball shape and so that the meatballs retain their shape after cooking.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Serve with your favorite pasta dish.
