Low-Carb Meatballs alla Parmigiana (GF)

We love Italian food and I am always trying to make it healthy, while still maintaining excellent flavor. This recipe for Low-Carb Meatballs alla Parmigiana was a hit and not too difficult to make! You will need almond flour, which can be expensive, but makes this dish Gluten Free. I used light/skim mozzarella cheese. I hope you enjoy this meal as much as my family did! We served it on top of brown rice, but you could make noodles instead.


- 1 lb. ground beef
- 2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
- 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. onion flakes
- 1/4 tsp. oregano
- 1/2 cup warm water


- 1 cup marinara sauce
- 4 oz. mozzarella cheese

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Grease a lined baking sheet.
3. Mix all meatball ingredients together and form 15 x 2" meatballs. Bake for 20 minutes.
4. In a shallow baking dish, grease and place your meatballs inside.
5. Spoon about a tablespoon of marinara sauce over each meatball and cover with a slice of mozzarella cheese.
6. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Top with more parsley as desired.
