What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

What To Do:

  2. Form the mixture into 15 meatballs, and place in a microwave-safe 9- x 13-inch baking dish.
     
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the spaghetti sauce and Parmesan cheese; pour over the meatballs.
