Who doesn’t love an excellent sheet pan dinner? They’re really easy and have barely any clean-up. Rooster meatballs with broccoli has tons of taste and likewise makes for excellent leftovers!

Your complete recipe might be made forward of time, positioned on a sheet pan and saved within the fridge till you’re able to roast dinner within the oven. 

I wish to pair this recipe with both cauliflower “rice” or soaked rice (for those who can tolerate rice). You’ll be able to all the time add extra selection to the recipe by including different greens rather than the broccoli.
