Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. I estimate the amount of my ingredients--use your own judgement. I always use a pound of ground meat.
Make medium size meatballs and place on baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes.
To make meatballs moist I like to marinate them AFTER they are cooked.
1 can low-sodium pasta sauce
1 can diced tomatoes (in onion and garlic)
2 cups spinach
In a saucepan heat up the sauce, tomatoes, and spinach.
Once warm-->place heat on LOW and add in meatballs.
I usually let my meatballs marinate for 1-2 hours on low-medium heat.
