This is just about the fastest meatball recipe you will ever make. If you want to prepare ahead for the week, double the meatball recipe then store your leftovers in a large mouthed mason jar in the fridge.


    1 lbs. ground beef

    1 tbsp. dried sage

    1 tbsp. dried oregano

    1 tsp. sea salt

    1 tsp. black pepper

    25 oz. tomato sauce

    8 oz. quinoa spaghetti


Preheat oven to 400ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Pour tomato sauce of choice into medium sized pot and simmer on low for 45 minutes, stirring periodically.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine ground beef, sage, oregano, salt, and pepper. Form 2-inch balls and arrange on the baking sheet. Bake meatballs for about 10-15 minutes then transfer them to sauce and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes.

While the meatballs are cooking in the sauce, boil a large pot of water and add pasta. Cook until tender.

To serve, pour tomato sauce and meatballs over cooked pasta.
