Grass-fed Beef Meatballs Recipe

grass-fed meatballs on spaghetti basil

Being a few months into my gluten and dairy-free journey, I figured it was time to recreate a childhood favorite of mine. This Grass-fed meatball dish has fresh herbs, tender beef, and perfect al-dente pasta. I also used a little trick to make this dish less harsh on sensitive stomachs like mine! Make sure to give it a save for your next Sunday Sauce! -Jenn
