  • 6 packed cups baby spinach, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese, plus 2 tablespoons for garnish
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Bake 1/2 of the package of the meatballs according to the package directions and set aside to cool.
