Italian Meatball Sheet-pan Dinner THMS, DF, SF

Need a quick easy meal? This one is a favorite of ours and so easy to make. Best of all, each person can pick and choose what they want to eat. I always make two trays for our family.

With this recipe you can also make noodles and even Ravioli. Perogies and ravioli are a bit time consuming but we do enjoy them for special occasions.
