Meatballs a la olivia

1/2 lb. ground pork

1/2 lb. ground chicken

2 lb. ground chuck

8 oz. ricotta cheese

2 Tbsp. sweet pickle relish

2 Tbsp. pesto

1/2 c. oats

Salt and pepper

Combine ingredients and form into balls.

Place in 13 x 9 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.

Drizzle with chili oil and bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes.

These freeze well.  I made some for Olivia who just had the baby a few weeks ago.  She defrosted them.

Browned them in a little oil and butter.  Poured sauce over and heated through.

She cooked some peppers and onions and added into the sauce and served them over linguini with steamed asparagus.

Olivia texted “Those meatballs were amazing!!! I did it with marinara and sauteed peppers and onions you left here – over linguini with asparagus!!

I’m just glad I can help her out a little and that they enjoyed the meatballs.

She posted a picture on her social media page saying  – “The little things..making dinner this pepper I was cutting looked like a heart 💛 ‪#‎yum‬”
