    4. 4
      Add the remaining oil, if necessary, and brown the other half of the meat balls. Drain on paper towels. Set aside the meatballs while making the sauce.

      These little meatballs are absolutely delicious. As an alternate to the tomato-based sauce, they can be served in a broth (with or without vegetables) or with a port, fig and bleu cheese sauce for dipping. These with also be good with a Romesco sauce.
