Happy National Meatball Day dear readers! Did you know that today is a national holiday celebrating these delicious morsels of goodness? I don’t know ANYONE who doesn’t love a good meatball ANYTHING!
Want to know our favorite? We love the authentically Italian Mama Mancini meatballs. Their entire product line is made from all natural ingredients – items like meatballs, stuffed meatballs, Italian sauces and so much more. Everything is slow-cooked to perfection.
My real reason for loving Mama Mancini’s though? Our favorites are already fully-cooked which means all I need to do is put them in the sauce and warm them up! I’m notorious for getting sidetracked and either burning my meatballs I’ve made from scratch or not cooking them through completely. Nothing worse than having your mouth all set for some delicious meatballs only to take a bite and find the inside is still raw. Ugh!
Mama Mancini’s prepared meatballs taste like my nana’s homemade meatballs, but I can heat them up in minutes and don’t have to spend all that time mixing and measuring seasonings! Double win for this mama! Perfect for anyone, from singles to college students, and families alike to celebrate this fun and delicious food holiday.
Today it’s spaghetti and meatballs for dinner (Mama Mancini’s of course!) and this weekend, Tre and I are going to make some homemade pizza. Since we both love meatballs so much, I thought a meatball pizza would be just the ticket! We’re sharing Mama Mancini’s Meatball Pizza recipe with you below!
