3 Good Size Handfuls of fresh Spinach
1 Clove of fresh Garlic
4 Tbsp Dried Sweet Basil
2 Tbsp Dried Italian Seasoning
2 Tbsp Dried Chopped Onions
1 Can Artichoke Hearts (drained)
3 lb Ground Meat ( 1/2 Turkey and 1/2 Grass Feed Beef)
Place spinach, egg and all seasonings in the food processor.
Allow spinach to breakdown to a paste and all seasonings to be distributed evenly.
Add in ground meat and combine until it is evenly dispersed.
Add in the can of artichoke hearts and pulse till they are broken up and distributed, but not completely chopped.
You want some bigger chunks of artichoke.
Allow mixture to sit in the refrigerator for a couple hours to let the flavors meld.
Form meat into desired size balls and place on a baking sheet.
Bake at 325 for about 20 minutes, or until the meatballs are almost completely cooked through.
The time will vary depending on the size you make, as well as the type of meat.
Place in a large pot and add in tomato sauce of your choice and allow them to finish cooking in the sauce.
Serve as is or on top of spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles. Enjoy
