Review: Casa di Bertacchi Meatballs

I love a good Italian dinner complete with pasta and meatballs.  Making meatballs from scratch is not too tough, but when you are short on time, it is nice to have a bag of frozen meatballs in the freezer to help make dinner time a little easier.  Casa di Bertacchi Meatballs have gone gluten-free, making them a great choice for those busy weeknights!


More about Casa Meatballs:

Casa Di Bertacchi, the maker of authentic, Italian-style beef meatballs, has some great news that I am so excited to share with you and your readers. It’s gone gluten-free!


The same tender, savory Casa meatballs that deliver on the promise of deliciously irresistible, homemade taste can now also be enjoyed by the gluten-free community. Fully cooked Casa Di Bertacchi Gluten-Free Meatballs – in the 5/8-ounce meatball size – are now available for $14.98 per six-pound bag at Sam’s Clubs nationwide.

Casa meatballs are perfect for families on the run, because they’re already seasoned and ready to eat. Whether you add them to a hearty casserole, toss them onto a mile-high meatball sandwich, or pop them into your mouth right after they’re warmed, you won’t be disappointed!

I wasted no time preparing an Italian feast fit for a king with the Casa Meatballs.


Pasta with marinara + meatballs and garlic cheese bagels = heaven!  The meatballs are perfectly seasoned and ready to incorporate into your favorite recipe, or eat alone.  I especially loved reading through the recipes on the website and think I may be giving this one for Easy Meatball Nachos soon.

Cut meatballs into quarters. Sauté the onion and bell pepper in olive oil over medium heat, until tender. Stir in meatballs and cook on high heat for 3 minutes. Stir in taco seasoning, tomatoes and beans. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally and breaking meatballs into smaller chunks. Spoon meat mixture over individual servings of tortilla chips and sprinkle with cheese. Top with sour cream, if desired.
