Tuscan Meatballs



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine ground beef, BLENDABELLA, eggs and breadcrumbs for meatballs in a medium bowl. Mix together with your hands until well-combined.
  3. Form the meat mixture into 1 to 1 1/2-inch meatballs and place on a clean plate.
  4. In a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Once hot, sear the meatballs on all sides, approximately 1 minute per side.
  5. Remove from heat and place in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according the the instructions on the package
  7. While the meatballs and pasta are cooking, in a large, straight-sided skillet over medium heat, warm the oil for the sauce. Add garlic and cook until just lightly golden.
  8. Stir in tomatoes and BLENDABELLA.
  9. Bring sauce to a simmer and cook until sauce is thick and tomatoes have mostly fallen apart, about 15 minutes. Mash the tomatoes up with the back of a wooden spoon to help break them down. Keep sauce warm until ready to serve.
  10. Serve meatballs over pasta with plenty of sauce. Garnish with freshly chopped basil.
