  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup frozen chopped spinach (thawed and drained)
  • 1/2 cup chopped artichoke hearts (canned or frozen is fine)

Instructions

For the meatballs:

For the sauce:

  1. Combine all of the sauce ingredients (except the shredded Mozzarella) in a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes, then stir until fully combined. (Alternatively you could heat in a small saucepan for 5 minutes) Place your meatballs in a greased,oven-safe, casserole dish. Pour the sauce over the meatballs, then sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese. Bake at 375 degrees (F) for 10 minutes, or microwave for 2 – 3 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbling. Serve hot.
