Between work, picking up the kids, cleaning, working out, and everything else on our plates, sometimes, all we want to do is make a quick, delicious meal for dinner instead of a two-hour preparation session. Luckily, Giada De Laurentiis may have solved our ticking time problem with a savory meatball recipe straight from our dreams.
On Nov 28, De Laurentiis’ coveted Instagram page @thegiadzy posted a mouth-watering photo of some delicious meatballs of De Laurentiis’ creation. They posted the photo with the caption, “The quickest meatballs you’ll ever make – so quick, in fact, @Giadadelaurentiis titled them “20-minute-meatballs”. Easy, comforting, delicious – it checks all the boxes! Grab the #recipe in our profile link and have dinner covered.”
De Laurentiis’ 20-Minute Meatballs take exactly that long — it’s no exaggeration. From start to finish, the entire process only takes twenty minutes — with a preparation time of fewer than ten minutes.
With less than 10 ingredients total, all you need is common ingredients like ketchup, oregano, and eggs, to name a few.
However, some De Laurentiis fans are having a hard time getting past the fact that ketchup is used in the recipe. But if you’re on the anti-ketchup side, no worries — you can replace it with more marinara.
This four-step process is perfect for a low-maintenance quick dinner for the whole family to enjoy. All you really need to do is mix, pour, and a few more steps to enjoy — and making seconds will be a breeze.
Get the recipe for Giada De Laurentiis’ Legendary 20 Minute Meatballs.
