Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 onion, finely minced or grated 
  • 1 cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped 
  • 1/3 cup ricotta cheese 
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, plus 1/3 cup for serving
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt 
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Saute the garlic and onions over medium heat until the onions are translucent. Set aside and let cool.

Combine the parsley, ricotta, 1/4 cup Parmesan, the salt, oregano and pepper in a bowl. Add the onion and garlic mixture with the beef, breadcrumbs, eggs and carrots. Mix gently by hand, being careful not to over-mix.

Roll out 21 meatballs by hand and arrange on a baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the marinara sauce in a saucepan.

Arrange the meatballs on a platter and top with the marinara sauce and remaining Parmesan.
