Savory Italian meatballs smothered in tomato sauce make such a comforting and hearty meal. “Hearty”, however, doesn’t have to be heart-stopping. Make the meatballs with ground bison, the protein of choice for anyone following a health-conscious diet. Bison is lower in calories than beef, pork, skinless chicken, sockeye salmon, and turkey. It is lower in fat and cholesterol than beef, pork, or chicken. Bison contains higher amounts of protein, iron, and vitamin B-12 than beef, chicken, pork, or salmon.

Authentic Italian sugo is prepared and served as smooth pourable sauce, not too thick, not too thin. This version is flavored with garlic, bay leaf, oregano, chili pepper, and one of the most important herbs in Italian cooking, rosemary. Sprigs of fresh rosemary give a buttery taste and extra-smooth texture to the tomato sauce that complements bison. Cook this sugo for only about one hour to keep it light and fresh. It is really, really good! Delicate in flavor, bison meatballs are more tender than beef, pork, or veal meatballs. If you haven’t tried bison, it is a precious addition for your cooking. Enjoy!
