    marisk's Note:

    This looked so good when he made it in one of his Throw Downs. Posting it here so I don't lose it. If you don't eat veal, you can omit it and increase the pork and beef to 3/4 pounds each. Also, don't pack the meatballs too tightly or they will be dense. The amount of pasta is based on 2 ounce servings.
