  • 2 Tbsp. Parsley
  • 1 Tbsp. Gluten Free Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Non-Dairy Milk


  • 1/4 C Olive Oil or Coconut Oil

  • Start cooking your noodles and set aside, see links above for noodle options.
  • In a small bowl, combine the ground flax seeds with the water. Mix and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the meatball ingredients, adding the flax eggs last. Mix together with hands.
  • Roll meat mixture into 1 1/2 inch sized balls and place on a cookie sheet. Place in freezer for 5 to 10 minutes to firm up.
  • Heat the olive or coconut oil over medium high heat in a large heavy bottomed pot.
  • Once the oil is hot, add 8 to 10 meatballs, turning to brown. Remove meatballs and drain on a paper towel. Repeat with remaining meatballs.
  • To the same pot, add the onion and garlic and cook until onions are translucent. Add the beef broth and, using a wooden spoon, scrape up all the yumminess from the bottom of the pan.
  • Stir in the crushed tomatoes, parsley, salt, pepper, and palm sugar or honey.
  • Add the meatballs to the sauce. Simmer 20 -25 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through,
  • Ladle some of the sauce into the noodles and stir to lightly coat with sauce.
  • To serve, top noodles with additional sauce and meatballs. Garnish with basil.
