Secret for Delicious Meatballs

Instead of frying your meatballs which adds fat and calories, drop medium size meatballs into boiling chicken broth, cooking for about 15 minutes. Drain on paper towels and then add them to simmering spaghetti sauce. They are very tender, but hold together well.

I never though about boiling my meatballs. Makes perfect sense. Thanks.

What a good idea. Most of the time when I made spaghetti though rather than meat balls I fry the mean and drain it before adding to the sauce.
