Instructions

To make Meatballs:

Combine all meatball ingredients in a large bowl until thoroughly mixed.

Roll mixture into 2- 2 1/2 inch balls.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add meatballs and cook for 5-7 minutes, turning meatballs to brown on all sides.

Remove meatballs to a plate and keep warm.

Add tomatoes and remaining marinara ingredients to skillet, scraping up any browned bits from the meatballs. Bring to a low simmer. Return meatballs to skillet to cook for another 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
