Ingredients

Method

In large bowl, stir together beef, cheese, onion, garlic, parsley, egg, fennel seeds, salt and pepper until blended. Form into 24 meatballs. Bake on parchment paper-lined baking sheet in 400°F (200°C) oven for 15 minutes.

Tomato Sauce:
Meanwhile, in saucepan, heat oil over medium-low heat; cook garlic, salt and hot pepper flakes until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Stir in chopped and strained tomatoes, oregano, vinegar, sugar and 1/4 cup water. Increase heat to medium; cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. With tongs, add meatballs to sauce; simmer for 5 minutes.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
