For Meatballs

For Sauce


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp parsley finely chopped


  • Preheat your oven to 350 F degrees.
  • In a large bowl add the meatball ingredients, and mix well using your clean hands. The mixture will be quite soft and loose, but they will cook into firm meatballs. 
  • Wet your hands and form the mixture into medium size meatballs. You should end up with about 30 meatballs. Drizzle the olive oil in a 9x13 inch casserole dish then place the meatballs in the dish.
  • In another large bowl mix the soup and water together, then pour over the meatballs. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and cover with aluminum foil. 
  • Bake covered for 35 minutes then remove the foil and cook for another 30-35 minutes, or until the rice pokes through the meatballs.
  • Serve with mashed potatoes and enjoy!
