For the Meatballs

  • 1/4 cup grated onion
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1-1 tbsp Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Casserole

  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 3 cups marinara sauce or 1 (24 oz) jar favorite marinara (I prefer Rao’s)
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. To make the meatballs: In a large bowl combine ground beef, cheeses, egg, onion, garlic, parsley and seasonings, mixing well.

  3. Use a cookie scoop to form the meatballs so they are all the same size, rolling them around in your hands, and arrange on a baking dish or cookie sheet. You should get about 15 to 16 large meatballs.

  4. Bake meatballs for 20 to 25 minutes, or until fully cooked. Remove meatballs, draining any excess grease, and arrange cooked meatballs in a baking dish.

  5. Pour marinara sauce evenly over the meatballs and spoon ricotta cheese on top.

  6. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.

  7. Remove from oven and top with fresh basil. Serve and enjoy!
