High Protein Spaghetti & Meatballs
An easy but delicious way to put a big dent in your daily protein macro goal.
Preheat the oven to 375° F or 190° C. In a large bowl combine the beef, eggs, carrot, spinach, garlic salt, black pepper, oregano, and bread crumbs. Mix until all of the ingredients are evenly dispersed throughout. (I use my hands, which is much quicker and easier than stirring.)
Form the meat mixture into 2 inch balls and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. (Should make 12 meatballs) and then bake the meatballs for about 30 minutes.
Pasta and Sauce
Boil the pasta for about 8 minutes as directed on the package and then drain and rinse the pasta with hot water.
Heat the pasta sauce on the stove or in the microwave.
Place ¼ of the pasta on each plate, add three meatballs, add ¼ of the pasta sauce and sprinkle with ¼ of the shredded parmesan cheese. Serve!
