Husband bought a jumbo bag of frozen Italian-style meatballs last year; I was craving something meaty yesterday (and wanted to try out a jar of Rao’s marinara sauce I’d bought a few weeks ago). Warmed the meatballs up in the air fryer and then put them in a pan with the sauce; sprinkled (a lot) of shredded Parmesan on top and enjoyed a tasty meal. But the meatballs didn’t taste entirely like meat, texture was a little weird; when I read the ingredients saw “soy” yuck — can’t tolerate much of that and some other ingredients that were suspect. So need to make my own meatballs (I prefer all beef anyway) and the next time it will be an even tastier experience…will finish up what we have since they’re not terribly carby. Guess it’s not possible to find pre-made meatballs with minimal ingredients, I’m not much of a cook but guess I’ll start learning. At least having these kept me from craving my usual fast food fix - it’s still my favorite- guess I was raised on it and it always tastes good to me.
Oh — and I thought the Rao’s was quite good!
