Meatballs are such a diverse food. You can make meatballs from ground beef, vegetables, pork, or ground chicken. We chose to utilize ground beef, but you can use ground chicken if you don't eat beef. This keto recipe is loaded with flavor and delicious. First, we seared the Parmesan Meatballs until golden brown; then, we simmered them in the marinara sauce as they baked in the oven. Finally, we topped the Parmesan meatballs with Parmesan and mozzarella cheese and tomatoes to elevate the dish.
