I buy my pasta sauce at the grocery. It's good stuff and avoids the necessity of hours in making the sauce. I like the brands that have an italian momma on the label.
Modified from the original recipe found on Food.com.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 1/2 cup grated locatelli cheese; hold back some for garnish.
- Whip eggs in a large bowl. Add beef to whipped eggs and incorporate by hand.
- Mix all other ingredients in a separate bowl then add to bowl with eggs and beef in stages to get a consistent distribution in the meat.
- Roll meatballs to about the size of a golf ball. (wet your hands to prevent the meat from sticking to them while rolling the meat balls).
- Drop raw meatballs into large (I use a stock pot) pot of sauce.
- OPTIONAL - Move oven rack to middle slot and place meatballs on a sheet pan and broil in the oven for 10 minutes, turning them over halfway through.
- Simmer meatballs in sauce for about 3 hours.
- Serve hot and sprinkle with the cheese you hopefully remembered to hold back.
