Meatball Recipe from Biz (Biggest Diabetic Loser blog)
1 pound 96/4 ground beef
1/2 cup Italian style bread crumbs
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
¼ tsp Salt, ¼ tsp pepper and ¼ tsp dried basil for taste
Other: 1 cup low-fat spaghetti sauce, 4 oz. spaghetti, 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley, salt and red pepper flakes to taste
Mix together ingredients and roll into equally sized meatballs (I did mine about 1.5” in diameter). Put half in the refrigerator for another recipe. Set water to boil, and cook 4 oz. spaghetti according to package. Drain and divide into two servings. Spray a pan with olive oil nonfat cooking spray. Drop in the remaining meatballs and brown turning with tongs until the outside is brown. Add sauce to pan and continue turning meatballs until they cook through, about 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and red pepper flakes. Stir and then serve over spaghetti. Top with parsley.
