This weekend, we had a very special guest for dinner. My dad (who recently moved out of state) was in town. To welcome him back home, I decided to whip up a very special dinner. I prepared chicken cutlets, a nice big salad, and best of all delicious pasta & meatballs just the way my Grandma used to make! It is times like these that I truly treasure the things that I was able to learn from my family because their insight, recipes and so much more- will live on for generations to come. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
~ Chop up fresh parsley~
~Add parsley to chop meat: I used a blend of beef, veal and pork~
~ Add fresh pecorino romano cheese, salt, pepper and most importantly, eggs- they help to make your meatballs soft and fork-tender- and mix well~
~ Roll the mixture into medium-sized balls~
~ Cook in olive oil until golden brown and add to tomato sauce; let simmer for about 2 hours~
