Popeye-Powered Meat Balls 

10 oz. chopped, lightly steamed spinach

1 lb. ground beef

1 egg, lightly beaten

26 oz. marinara sauce, divided

¼ c. breadcrumbs

¼ c. grated Parmesan, optional

Drain spinach well.  In a medium bowl, combine beef, egg, ½ of the marinara sauce, and breadcrumbs.  In a very large skillet, bring the remaining sauce to a low boil. Add spinach to the meat mixture and combine thoroughly.  With wet hands, form the meat mixture into 1-2 inch balls and add them to the sauce in the skillet.  Once all the meatballs (it should make 15-20) are in the pan, cover the pan almost completely, leaving room for a little air to escape, and simmer the sauce.  After 10 minutes, carefully flip the meatballs and partially cover the pan again.  Cook for 5-10 minutes until the meatballs are no longer pink in the center. Serve with pasta, topped with parmesan, if you please.
