1/4cupalmond flourI buy the Kirkland brand at Costco
1/4cupfresh grated parmesan
1tspdried basil ground in spice mortar
2tspdried Italian parsley ground in spice mortar
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Place meat in a large mixing bowl. In your blender (I use the Ninja Blender) puree the bell pepper, 1/2 sweet onion, and garlic cloves. Set 2-3 TBS to the side, to put in the sauce. Add the rest of the pureed ingredients to the meat. Add the rest of the ingredients to the meat and mix very well with hands. Roll out meat balls with hands, see size in picture, roll until they keep there shape. Place on baking sheet with about 1/4 inch of space between each ball. Bake in pre-heated oven for 25 min. Traditionally they are cooked in a skillet, but the baking method saves so much time! When they are done place the meatballs in the sauce. You will have to gently stir the meatballs in several times to fit them all in the sauce. Let cook on low stirring occasionally for 4-6 hours. Serve with fresh grated parmesan sprinkled on top.
