Sweet Potato Chicken Meatballs Lettuce Cups
Meatballs are a traditional recipe and its usually a spaghetti and meatballs recipe traditionally used in Italian dishes. This is basically a sweeter tastier meatball that you can use with simply anything. From noodles to veggie noodles, wraps, lettuce cups. I dressed these meatballs with a basic tomato sauce that I will save for another post. Some added crunch with matchstick carrots. Sometimes easy and simple recipes are just the way to go- pretty much the tastiest
