Meatballs Marinara with Broiled Artichokes

What you will need for this recipe:

1 pound ground beef (I went with a lean ground)
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
1 egg-beaten
Fresh parsley-chopped
1/2 cup tomato paste
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon garlic powder
salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients together and form into 12 balls.  Place on broiler pan 4 to 6 inches from heat.  Broil meatballs for 7 minutes, then flip over for another 3 to 4.  I used one large pan and broiled the artichokes and meatballs together to save time and energy.


Use fresh or jarred for this recipe.  I used a mixing bowl and tossed them in olive oil and bacon crumbles.  Sprinkle a little salt over top before serving.

For the marinara:  You could use your favorite jarred sauce, but the fresh stuff is always the best.
8oz can plum tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic-chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
Fresh basil chopped
Salt and pepper
