Easy Baked Meatballs

One of my kids most favorite dinners is spaghetti and meatballs. They often request it for dinner, so I like to make a batch of meatballs, cook them and stick them in the freezer. On the days where the kids are requesting it for dinner, I pull some out and add it to some pasta/sauce, and dinner is done. Now I do have a slight confession…..I have yet to find a sauce that my family loves from scratch. I know, crazy huh? I have tried to make several, and each time, my family requests the jarred kind. Don’t worry, I will keep trying to find one. In the meantime, these meatballs have been perfected and let me tell you, not only are they simple to make, but they are packed with flavor. This is definitely my go to recipe, and I LOVE that I can freeze the extras for another meal or two down the road!! Enjoy!
