Easy meatballs, couscous and tomato sauce
Jan 18 2022
This is one of those meals that takes very little time to put together and saves me so much stress when I need dinner asap! You could use rice or pasta for this one, my kids just really love Israeli couscous.
Combine the meat with breadcrumbs, cheese, herbs, garlic, 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of pepper. Using a small ice cream scoop form the meatballs, there should be 12-14 of them.
Heat up a large skillet with 2 tbsp of olive oil and brown the meatballs on each side for about 4-5 minutes. At this stage we just want to create flavor not really cook the meatball since they will do that in the sauce.
Add the sauce and bring it to simmer for 5 minutes. Add in the couscous and stock. Bring to a gentle boil and then simmer until the couscous is cooked, it should be about another 10-12 minutes.
Grate some more parmesan on top and add some freshly chopped basil and done!
