Meatballs are such a comfort food for me. I mean who doesn’t love a good meatball.
Italian Meatball Recipes
It’s like a ball filled with so much flavor, and my asiago fresh herb meatballs have even more flavor than you’d typically expect in a meatball!
Meatballs in Oven
That’s probably because of the abundance of fresh herbs and the asiago cheese.
And, these meatballs are going to be baked in the oven making it pretty simple and easy.
If you’re not familiar with asiago, yeah, one of my favorite cheeses, it’s an Italian cow’s milk cheese.
And, the texture of this cheese changes depending upon the aging or maturity of it. And, in my opinion, Italian meatballs are great with asiago cheese.

If you get a ‘young’ asiago, called asiago pressato, you’re going to have something more buttery and sweeter.
What to do with Asiago Cheese
And, if the cheese ages, you’ll have a more pronounced flavor, firm and crumbly and perfect in so many cooking applications as well as serving on a cheese tray with fruit, nuts, dried meats and more.
Aged asiago has hints of dried fruit and more saltiness, which I love!
Best Seasoning for Italian Meatballs
Now, these fresh herb meatballs are perfect for asiago cheese.
Just chop and crumble the cheese and it works into the meat mixture with no problems.
Garlic and Herb Meatballs
In fact, we’re going to use less of breadcrumbs, or in this recipe crushed oats or saltine crackers, because the cheese acts like a binder of all the ingredients.
These little nuggets and flicks of cheese melt in the meatballs as they cook and adds to the deliciousness!

Substitutions for breadcrumbs: whole oats quickly pulsed in food processor to make into a finer mixture, saltines finely crushed, cooked rice finely chopped. Marinara substitution: Crushed (or whole) San Marzano Tomatoes (28 oz. can) + 2 cups water or bone broth These meatballs keep well for several days. You might find that you need to add more marinara sauce to them. So, have an extra jar on hand! Like most sauces and meatballs, these are better on day two! Try making great meatball sandwiches or use the meatballs, sliced or diced, on pizza!
