    dojemi's Note:

    My Mom gave me the list of ingredients but she never measured, so I tested and tested and think I've finally duplicated her recipe. The proporation I use for salt is generally 1 teaspoon per lb; for pepper, 1/2 teaspoon per lb; for parsley, 1 teaspoon per lb. I find that meatballs, in general, will be softer if you complete the cooking in pasta sauce. Serving size is guess-timate. I've included the recipe # for my sister's sauce, and you won't be sorry you tried it.
