Light Italian Meatballs

Moist, tender, juicy, and bursting with flavor, these Italian meatballs are the best I’ve ever had.

Made with real ground beef, (not turkey or chicken!) they taste so good..



  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef (96% lean, 4% fat)
  • 1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 jar fat free marinara sauce (I used Trader Joe’s Organic Spaghetti Sauce with Mushrooms)


  1. Combine all ingredients except the marinara sauce in a large bowl, and mix well with hands.
  2. Form meat into 30 1” meatballs.
  3. Spray a very large, non-stick skillet with an olive oil mister, and set over medium high heat. Once pan is heated well, add in meatballs, and brown on each side (about 3-4 minutes per side).
  4. Pour in jarred marinara, cover and turn heat to medium low. Let simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Preparation time: 15 minute(s)
