A cup of spinach goes into the meatball mixture to help hold everything together. It also adds nutritional benefits because of its vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. I was a little surprised how green the meatballs looked when they were raw, and they turn a gorgeous color once they’re browned under the broiler. The spinach color stayed a lovely vibrant green, creating an intriguing and eye-catching dish. The kids won’t be able to protest.
