1 pound Simply Nature Organic 100% Grass-fed Ground Beef
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 tablespoons grated onions
½ cup Chef’s Cupboard Italian Breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon Happy Harvest Tomato Paste
1 egg
1 teaspoon salt + ½ teaspoon black pepper



2 tablespoons Simply Nature Olive Oil

8 ounces of Priano Conchiglie (shell shaped) pasta

Cook the meatballs, flipping as needed to brown all sides, about 6 minutes. Don’t worry if they haven’t cooked all the way through, we will finished cooking them in the soup.
