We all love classic comfort food recipes. They remind us of home, of childhood, of happy times. But in the summer, comfort foods can be way too heavy. Who wants to eat a giant pot pie before hitting the beach in a bikini? No one. Ever. Instead, try a lighter version of the classic comfort foods. These spinach ricotta meatballs are so good, you won't even miss the meat.

2 cups chopped spinach

1 cup ricotta cheese

1 cup Parmesan cheese

1 ½ cups breadcrumbs

4 eggs

Salt and pepper

Mix spinach, ricotta, Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs and eggs and mix well until it comes together. Season with salt and pepper. Use a cookie scoop and scoop out the batter into balls, placing them on a sheet of parchment. Heat a bit of oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add meatballs and cook on all sides until evenly browned. Serve over pasta.

Makes approximately 25 meatballs
