Italian Meatballs

Today I am posting a meatball recipe that I think is really good. They are really good an tender. I have tried other recipes and I think this one is the best. When I make these I only use enough for one meal(I'm only cooking for 2)and I freeze the rest.I use a freezer bag. This way I don't have to make them every time I make spaghetti. I just pull them from the freezer and add to my sauce. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do. I don't have a picture, but I don't think you really need one for these.
