Paleo Meatballs with Squash & Sweet Potato

Introducing the Cannella Balls!  Adapted from Chris & Christine our friends and owners of Cannella's Custom Cycles and  Boutique recipe.  Being the Queen of improve and not having the right ingredients; I once again got really's because I'm a "Good Girl!"  

Ingredients Meatballs: 
Ground Beef 5 lbs
Sausage 2 cups all natural no casing  
Eggs 4 large
Garlic Cloves 3 minced
Onion 1 all minced
Coconut Amino's 2 tablespoons
Sweet Potato 1 small cooked/smashed
Acorn Squash 1 cup cooked/smashed 
Parsley 2 tablespoons 
Sea Salt/Pepper 1 teaspoon each

Ingredients Sauce:
Tomatos Crushed 6 cups (we prefer San Marzano) 
Olive Oil 2 tablespoons 
Basil 7-8 leaves fresh 
Sea Salt/Pepper 

Mix all Meatball ingredients except the Ground Beef together until no lumps.  Then add Beef and roll into 2 inch balls.  Bake on parchment lined pans at 375 degrees for 22-25 minutes until browned.  Add Oilve Oil to bottom of large stove top pot in medium heat.  Add the rest of the Sauce ingredients.  Add Meatballs into Sauce (careful to remove any grizzle).  Let the Meatballs cook in the sauce until they get happy about 2-4 hours.   *Note this recipe makes about 35 decent sized Meatballs but Sunday Family Dinners at out house are out of control and I tripled this recipe.  It was an upper body WOD just to roll them!
