Grab a small amount of meat at a time, then roll them into small balls, and set them aside. Place a frying pan on a stove over medium-high heat, then add some olive oil, and start adding the meatballs. Turn them occasionally and lightly cook them until nicely seared on all sides making sure not to overcook.

Add some pasta sauce at the bottom of a baking dish, then spread it out nicely before adding the cooked meatballs, and then pour the remaining pasta sauce all over the meatballs.
