  • Combine ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, mozzarella cheese, and garlic in a medium bowl. Use a 1/4 cup measure or ice cream scoop to portion into 12 to 13 meatballs. Place on prepared baking sheet.

  • Baked until browned and cooked through, about 15 minutes.

  • Bring the Ragu® Sauce to a simmer in a 12-inch skillet. Gently place the cooked meatballs into the sauce. Simmer 10 minutes.

  • Ladle some of the sauce over hot pasta and toss to coat. Serve with more sauce and the meatballs with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.

So love this recipe for meatballs....delicious!!! Only thing I did different was I added a tbsp of Italian seasoning to the meatballs & I made my own pasta sauce instead of Ragu but overall I give 5 stars on just the meatball recipe itself Read More

Lacked taste. I had to add onions grated cheese oregano and an extra clove. The first time I made it was with Rao's Marinara sauce b/c I was too lazy to make my own and the 2nd x I made it with my homemade sauce. The 2x was the best. I think I'll keep my own recipe. Read More

Thank you so much for this recipe! It is easy and delicious and I had almost all of the ingredients on hand. The mozarella that I had was not good so I used parmesan in its place. I also used barilla marinara sauce because that is what I had. I also added salt and pepper to the meat mixture. Read More

I made these tonight with a couple of changes. I sautéed an onion and the minced garlic in a little olive oil. I added them to the meatball mixture with basil oregano salt and pepper. I am also not a fan of Ragu so I used my favorite sauce. The mozzarella cheese really makes the meatball. I will definitely make them again! Read More
