Next time you have a get together don’t be that unhealthy person with all the JUNK! Instead, try this recipe. Great for parties and they taste delicious.

Ingredients:

1 small onion diced (you can saute them too.)
1 tsp. garlic powder or 1 clove garlic minced
1 tsp. italian seasoning (herbs of your choice)  example:basil, oregano, thyme…..
3 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese (it’s a lower fat cheese)

Saute onions on med. heat in 1 tbsp. olive oil for approx. 5 min. (optional)  Combine all other ingredients and add sauteed onion to mixture.  Roll into 1 inch meatballs.
