Directions

In a mixing bowl, combine the meat, spinach, bread crumbs, egg and garlic cloves. Form into 1 inch meatballs. In a large skillet, add the olive oil and brown the meatballs on all sides. Once browned, set them aside on a plate and drain any excess grease. Crush the garlic. Rinse the fresh herbs, pat dry and run your knife through them. In the same skillet that you browned the meatballs, add the canned tomatoes with the liquid. Add the tomato paste plus one cans worth of water. Stir in the spices, garlic and salt and pepper. Place the browned meatballs back into the skillet with the sauce. Cover and let simmer for 10-15 minutes. Serve Spinach Meatballs over noodles
