2 to 3 pounds ground beef
1 can tomato paste
Italian seasonings (parsley, basil, rosemary, oregano)
Salt, pepper and garlic
3 to 5 cans tomato sauce or pizza sauce
Shredded mozzarella cheese
In a large bowl, beat egg and add ground beef, seasonings, tomato paste and some bread crumbs. Mix together well. Add more seasonings and bread crumbs if needed. Form mixture into bite-size meatballs and place them in a large saucepan. Cook the meatballs slowly, turning frequently so they brown evenly.
While the meatballs cook, pour the tomato sauce or pizza sauce into a crockpot or other large pot. If youâ€™re using tomato sauce, youâ€™ll need to add Italian seasonings and salt, pepper and garlic. Use enough sauce to cover the meatballs. Begin heating the sauce. When the meatballs are done, place them in the sauce. After the sauce is hot, serve on rolls with shredded mozzarella.
