Change up your meatballs to this great looking recipe!  Add a vegetable or salad for a side.  Make double for leftovers or add to pasta for another meal.



1. In a large bowl, mix together pork, beef, rice, onion, garlic, oregano and hot pepper flakes with your hands until well combined. Divide into 16 and roll each into a meatball.
2. Place meatballs into lightly sprayed casserole dish. Sprinkle peppers over top and drizzle with pasta sauce. Shake pan to help coat meatballs. Cover with foil and bake in 375 F (190 C) oven for about 45 minutes or until rice is tender and meatballs are no longer pink inside.
3. Sprinkle with parmesan and parsley, if desired to serve.
