  1. Make the meatballs. In a medium sized bowl combine ground meat, 2 tsp salt, 2 tsp pepper, 1 tbsp minced cilantro and 1 tbsp minced parsley. Mix well and form into 1 inch meatballs. Set aside.
  2. In a skillet add olive oil and minced onion. Cook over medium high heat until the onion begins to become translucent. Add Mutti® Tomato Puree, cinnamon stick, 1 tbsp cilantro, 1 tbsp parsley and remaining salt and pepper. Heat until sauce begins to bubble and boil lightly.
  3. Add in meatballs and lower heat to medium. Cook until the meatballs are fully cooked - about 15-20 minutes. While waiting, crack eggs into separate ramekins. Remove any shells.
  4. Once meatballs are cooked, create 5 small wells in the sauce and add eggs one at a time into the skillet. Cover and continue to cook until egg whites are solid (about 5 minutes). Sprinkle with feta cheese, remaining cilantro and parsley. Enjoy!
