You want to have your family gather around the table but now you have to decide what to make and you don’t have a lot of time to prepare. Here is a quick solution to fill an empty plate. All you need is:
- frozen meatballs
- jar of marinara sauce
- mozzarella cheese and/or parmesan cheese
- bag of salad
Put meatballs into an oven safe container. Poor marinara sauce over meatballs and top with cheese. Cook at 350 degrees until meatballs are thawed and cheese is melted (usually 30-40 minutes for small meatballs, 45 minutes for larger meatballs).
I love bags of salad! You can add anything you want to the bag of salad or nothing at all. I like to add black olives, sundried tomatoes, and hearts of palm to the lettuce mixture.
Problem solved, so gather around!
