Make-ahead instructions


The meatballs can be made ahead of time a couple different ways. First, you can make the recipe completely, portion out, and store in the refrigerator (up to 5 days) or freeze (up to 3 months). Reheat in the microwave. Second, you can bake the meatballs and then freeze before baking in the sauce. When you're ready to use the meatballs thaw them overnight in the refrigerator and then continue with recipe. Please note you might need to add on a couple minutes if the meatballs weren't thawed all the way.
