I decided to repost one of my most popular dishes! Enjoy.
Ricotta Meatballs! I got the idea from Rediscovering Lost Arts From Our Mothers. I didn't follow her recipe, I did my own thing, but her recipe inspired me! All I can say is... WOW! They came out awesome.
Ricotta Meatballs In Marinara Sauce
6 cloves garlic
1 small onion
1 can crushed tomatoes
Heat a small amount of olive oil in a sauce pan. Add in chopped garlic and onion, cook on low until garlic browns and onion softens. Add in crushed tomato. Season with salt, red pepper and basil. Cover and simmer on low, stirring often, for about an hour.
1 package of ground veal, pork and beef mix
1 red potato
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix meat and all ingredients except cheese in a large bowl as shown in video. Grind the potato into very small pieces. Mix well with hands. Add in cheese and mix well. Don't overmix. Roll meat into balls and place in pan sprayed with cooking spray. Place in oven uncovered and cook 20 to 30 minutes.
When meatballs are nice and brown, remove from oven. Coat the bottom of a serving dish that can go into the oven with a small amount of sauce. Place meatballs in serving dish. Cover with sauce. Place Mozzarella cheese on top of each meatball. Place in oven and cook until cheese melts.
Serve over pasta or rice of your choice or enjoy with a big salad.
