Spinach Balls with Tomato Sauce

These Spinach Balls are an easy meatless home cooked dish that even veggie avoiders will enjoy. My oldest son doesn’t eat spinach and he couldn’t stop eating these Spinach Balls.

Buen provecho!

    This looks really fun and tasty! The green color is so striking, I can’t help but think that these would be especially appropriate for springtime or St Patrick’s Day.
