    Sue Lau's Note:

    I like to use some of the frozen red bell peppers which I have roasted and frozen last summer but store bought works well. This meal goes well with a tossed salad or grilled zucchini, as well as garlic bread and Shiraz wine. Fresh fruit or espresso with biscotti makes a nice finish to the meal.

    Units: US | Metric

    For the meatballs

    • 1 lb lean ground beef
    • 1 lb ground veal (or may use ground beef or ground pork as well)
    • 2/3 cup roasted red pepper, minced
    • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
    • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
    • 1/2 onion, minced
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 cup soft breadcrumbs (pulse bread slices in your food processor or crumble stale bread with fingertips)
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/2-1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust for preferred spiciness)
    • 1/2-1 cup water

    • cooked spaghetti (I use Dreamfield's lower glycemic spaghetti)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix together all ingredients, adding water last and using only as much water as it takes for the meat to come together without being too thick.
    2. 2
      Line a baking pan with nonstick foil or nonstick spray.
    3. 3
      Form meat mixture into 18 large meatballs, patting them lightly into large balls, and placing them evenly apart on the baking pan.
    4. 4
      Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 40 minutes or until firm.
    5. 5
      Place meatballs in a large saucepan or dutch oven and cover with 1 1/2-2 quarts of spaghetti sauce and simmer over low heat for about 30 minutes.
    6. 6
      Serve meatballs in sauce over cooked spaghetti.
