3/4 lbs ground beef
3/4 lbs ground pork
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup plain bread crumbs
1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
Salt and Pepper
Marinara sauce, 2 jars
1 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1) Mix the beef and pork in a medium bowl. Add the eggs, Parmesan, breadcrumbs, garlic, salt and pepper until well mixed.
2) Preheat oven to 375 degrees and Pour some sauce onto the bottom of a baking dish. Start forming your meatballs and lay on top of the sauce. Cover with more sauce and top with Mozzarella.
