This is my mother in-law's meatball recipe which was served at ALL family celebrations! It was always a big hit and there were never left overs. People would search them out as soon as they walked into the house during a holiday. It was the first aroma that hit your nose as you opened the door. *Please note that the cooking time includes time that the meatballs marinate in the wine sauce. **Also the yield number of meatballs is purely a guess based on the size of yours, you may have more or less.
