Easier than Lasagna this hearty soup is sure to fill your family up with some warm goodness.
Meatball Quinoa Soup, Meatballs in your favourite sauce on pasta and Meatball Subs in a marinara sauce are 3 meal ideas. If kids are doing this recipe I would suggest only 1 recipe split between 2 or 3 families so the kids don't get overwhelmed by the rolling involved. Feel free to adjust the mixture of ground meats - all beef, all turkey or a mixture of beef and pork are also delicous.
Because this sauce is so divine the recipe makes a double batch. A double batch can be made by each guest but requires a 7 litre/7 quart slow cooker or dutch oven. In a group setting it is suggested that 2 guests make one recipe just divide vegetables and sauce between 2 pots and guests can roll their own meatballs. This recipe works well started in the morning and cooking in the slow cooker for 6 hours on high or simmering on the stove for 3 hours. Flavours are fantastic made a day ahead.
Lasagna sheets are my new favourite way to make a lasagna. You can find them at your local italian shop.
