DIRECTIONS

  • Heat olive oil in a very large soup/stew pot and saute onions until soft, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add remaining ingredients and stir until well combined.
  • Simmer the sauce for 3 hours and if you are going to add the meatballs:
  • Place all meatball ingredients, except olive oil, in a large bowl and mix gently.
  • Do not over mix the meatballs, they will be tough.
  • Form and shape either small, 2" diameter balls or larger.
  • Salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Now you can either drop the meatballs into the simmering sauce for 3 hours or you can sear them first in the remaining olive oil and then drop them into the sauce.
  • My Italian friends prefer the fried meatballs.
