The cheese was very prominent in these meatballs and the sauce was very good. I served over plates of spaghetti that had been tossed with lots of garlic and oil. Made for PAC, Fall '09.
I haven't made the sauce, but the meatballs are terrific. I bake these in mini muffins tins and have served as part of an app's buffet. I like meatballs many different ways. I'm glad to add this one to the list. : )
This is a fabulous recipe. We are from Long Island, and have eaten at Maroni's in Northport, and it is a wonderful experience, a tiny, delightful restaurant. My husband and I went for his tasting menu. That is where we first tasted his meatballs. Of course, the throwdown made all the local news, and of course, watched it. Both my husband and I make this recipe, quite often, and everyone loves the result!
I, too, saw this episode and have been making the sauce and meatballs for several years. My kids - grown now - never liked other meatballs, but love these. I normally simmered my sauce for hours, but this sauce is quick enough for a weeknight supper and is really delicious. Thanks for converting the measurements, I'll have to try it!
This is an excellent sauce and meatball recipe! I was intrigued because it was an old recipe and often times those are the best! This one went over big. The meatballs were cheesy and tender, The sauce was flavorful and delicious. This is a keeper for us!
