    Belgicook's Note:

    This is a beautiful and subtle Italian dish that I was introduced to during a cooking lesson. The secret is in the quality of the ingredients - the better your parmesan cheese and balsamic vinegar, the more enchanting your polpettine (meatballs) will taste. Presentation is also a factor here: the dish is supposed to be as visually appealing as it is delicious. It takes a little time to get the peppers done but the result is well worth the wait!
