Preparation
1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Set a wire rack over a baking sheet and grease with nonstick spray.
2. Make the marinara sauce: Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and season with salt, pepper, and the red pepper flakes. Cook until soft and caramelized, about 15
minutes.
3. Set aside ⅓ cup (50 G) of the cooked onions and garlic for the meatballs and let cool.
4. Stir the tomato paste into the onions and cook until browned and aromatic, 3-5 minutes.
5. Add the crushed tomatoes, dried basil, dried oregano, and dried parsley. Stir together and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for at least 30 minutes.

combined.
