Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C)
Mix all of the ingredients listed for the meatballs by hand in a large mixing bowl.
Form into large meatballs. I prefer to use a 1/3 measuring cup for equally sized meatballs. Scoop and shape!
Place each meatball on a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet.
Bake for 40 minutes at 400°F (204°C)
Make Quick Tomato Sauce
Mince garlic cloves
Saute garlic in olive oil and dried Italian seasoning until fragrant over medium heat, then add tomato paste and continue cooking for another minute or so. The tomato paste should fully dissolve before moving to the next step.
Add chicken stock and stir until smooth. Whisking is helpful at this stage.
Simmer the sauce for about 5 minutes, then turn the burner off. The quick tomato sauce can rest on the warm burner until the meatballs are ready.
Remove the meatballs from the oven and arrange on a serving platter.
Whisk the quick tomato sauce one more time, then pour evenly over the plated meatballs
