– 1 lb Ground Beef 80/20 – ½ cup Breadcrumbs Italian seasoning – 2 Eggs – 2 Garlic Cloves – 1 ½ cups Mozzarella Shredded – 2 cups Tomato Sauce Your Favorite Jarred Variety – 1 cup Ricotta Whole milk


Preheat the oven to 375.

In a bowl, add the ground meat, breadcrumbs, eggs, ½ cup of mozzarella, and ground garlic.  Mix well until fully combined.

With a mini ice cream scoop, scoop out the mixture and roll into balls.  Place the meatballs onto a silicone lined baking sheet.

Bake the meatballs for 20 minutes.  While the meatballs bake, add the tomato sauce to a cast iron skillet.

Spoon ricotta into the tomato sauce. When the meatballs are done cooking, add them to the tomato sauce.
