Baked Meatballs – 1 Smart Point

These meatballs are so TASTY! Each one is just one point. One point!!! Plus they are filling. Pasta goes great with these meatballs. I had four meatballs, a half cup of pasta and 1/4 cup of spaghetti sauce. My whole meal was only 8 points!

The other thing that’s great about these meatballs is they are easy to make. After you mix the ingredients the oven does the rest of the work. It’s the perfect weeknight meal.
