Creamy Tomato Sauce & Toppings:


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Prepare a baking dish, similar to a 9x13 inch casserole pan, optionally lined with foil or parchment paper for easier cleanup.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add all meatball ingredients and mix well. Form into 16-18 meatballs, 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter.
  • Arrange the formed meatballs in a single layer on the baking dish, without touching each other.
  • Bake at 350 F until cooked through or when the internal temperature reaches 165 F, 25 to 30 minutes (see "Baking Time For Meatballs" section below).
  • While the meatballs are baking, prepare the sauce and toppings. Heat marinara sauce in a small saucepan and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low and stir in cream until it forms a lovely orange hue. Keep warm over low heat while you wait for the meatballs.
  • Once the meatballs are done, transfer only the meatballs onto serving plates, leaving the grease in the baking dish.
  • Pour creamy tomato sauce over the meatballs, and top with parmesan cheese. Sprinkle parsley and crushed red pepper. Serve while hot.
