These easy Air Fryer Meatballs Marinara are one of our family’s favorite dinners. With just a handful of ingredients and a few simple steps, you can whip these up any night of the week.
The meatballs cook in the air fryer in just 10 minutes! The sauce can be heated with the meatballs on the stove or in the oven in 10-15 minutes more, and dinner is ready to serve.
We like to serve the meatballs over traditional pasta or, for a lower carb option, zoodles (zucchini noodles). They are also delicious as a quick lunch with a side salad and fresh bread, or packed, warm, in a thermos for protein-packed lunch-on-the-go. Or, make the meatballs on the small side and serve ’em as an appetizer with toothpicks! With so many options, you’ve just got to try them!
Although Air Fryer Meatballs Marinara are very simple to throw together, you can make them in advance to save time. They freeze well and heat up easy, so make an extra batch for another night and you’ll thank yourself later!
