MEGA MEATBALLS



1 ½ pounds ground chuck 
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese 
1/2 cup bread crumbs (preferably Italian) 
2 large eggs 
1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper 
8 ounces of water 
1 ts of onion powder
1 ts of powdered chicken broth
32 ounces of authentic marinara sauce
1 tb of margarine
1 TBS OF SUGAR

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350º. In a mixing bowl, combine first 8 ingredients and mix thoroughly. Do not over mix – this will cause the meatballs to become tough. Divide into equal portions and shape into 8 meatballs I got 12. Place meatballs on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake until a dark brown crust forms, 13 to 15 minutes.
Step 2: Transfer meatballs to a baking dish. Combine marinara sauce sugar, margarine and water, and pour over the meatballs. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake until meatballs are cooked through, 25 to 35 minutes. Place the meatballs on a platter. Skim the oil from the top of the marinara and ladle it over the meatballs.
I made a pot of  spaghetti- cook according to package. one done rinse pasta and add margarine and a cup of sauce so it does not dry the pasta.
