How to make it

  • The Marinara
  • Pour the olive oil into a pan and heat.
  • Saute the garlic and onions until transparent. Add in the mushrooms and cook for 2-3 more minutes or until the aroma starts come out.
  • Add the tomatoes and the tomato paste and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and add in the white wine (or broth), herbs, seasonings, bouillon, and sugar. Simmer at least a half hour adjusting for taste.
  • The Meatballs
  • Combine all the ingredients and mix well being careful not to over mix.
  • You can test flavor by frying a little of meat mixture before making the meatballs.
  • Take a small portion of meat mixture and roll into balls. Don't mash too hard, but just enough to keep it's shape. (Over-handling makes meat tough)
  • Heat a frying pan with a little olive oil.
  • Place the meatballs in the hot oil and brown all sides.
  • Place browned meatballs into an oven safe dish coated with marinara sauce.
  • Spoon marinara sauce over the meatballs and sprinkle some mozzarella or Parmesan cheese on top.
  • Bake 5-10 minutes at 350 degrees, or until juices run clear.
