Calabrian Meatballs

Calabrian Meatballs created by Stardustannie

Can't remember where I got the recipe from, but it has been my family's favourite meatball recipe for years.Feel free to use any pasta sauce you have, either store bought or homemade, but keep in mind these meatballs have a lovely lemony, parmesany flavour and a really herby sauce may detract from that.

    Yes I agree, this is a fabulous recipe that I have handed down to my family...it's from a family circle magazine and show many years ago..the presenter was a chef called Joanne Calabria.

    I ended up with some pork mince and had no idea what to do with it, this recipe was quite good, my husband and I both liked it and finished all that was on our plates but I don't know that I would make it again, it just didn't have that wow factor for us. The flavour was good and it was nice for something different and a great way of using pork mince.
