Spinach Parmesan Chicken Meatballs in Fresh Tomato Sauce

A delicious, healthy and simple Parmesan Chicken Meatball recipe, packed with tasty fresh ingredients like spinach, tomatoes and basil. 

Meatballs are a great weekend meal. I love to make them on a Saturday night when I can have the TV on in the background whilst I am rolling out the meatballs.

These Spinach Parmesan Chicken Meatballs are a fun healthy twist on traditional beef meatballs, and taste delicious served over pasta or with steamed vegetables.
