    petlover's Note:

    easy and good - you can use any italian red sauce ( ready made or your own )for simmering -- i have used shallots instead of the onions with great results. Have the sauce simmering before you make the meatballs-it comes out better also-test the consistency of the raw meat before you shape the meatballs-the mix should be soft but it should hold together well in your hand. My kids, little and big, beg me to make this-there are never any leftovers!

      My Man is a meatball man. So we have tried many a recipe for these lil' guys, but this is definitely one of the best! Perfect ratio of meat, breadcrumbs, and egg renders a beautiful little ball that holds together really well, but absolutely melt in your mouth! Simmered for an hour in Simple Marinara Sauce by Abi Fae. I did add a few fresh herbs to the meat mixture and the sauce (thyme, sage, parsley, chives, and basil) and served 'em up open-faced and smothered in broiled mozzarella on a wonderful artisan bread from our local bakery. Perfect with a side of sauteed zucchini and green salad. Thanks, petlover!
