Florentine Meatballs are a new family fave

I was looking for an easy way to get some veggies into my family’s dinner and I also had leftover ground beef to use.  Instead of doing the same old hamburgers or meatloaf, I found Rachael’s recipe for Florentine Meatballs.  She uses ground turkey, but I used ground beef because it was what I had on hand.  These were wonderful and healthy, as they were baked instead of fried.  The cheese sauce could put them over the edge in terms of your daily fat quotient, but if you use the sauce as a dip, or only drizzle a little bit on the meatballs, then you get all of the flavor without the guilt.  I recommend the provolone as it is sharper than mozzarella.

My entire family enjoyed these.  I made them small enough that everyone could eat them with toothpicks which made them fun and festive.  You can serve them with a nice salad or a vegetable soup for a complete dinner.
