Sometimes, you just need to roll some meat balls in your hands!

I’m talking homemade meatballs, chock full of veal, pork, chuck, parmesean cheese, onion, parsley, and garlic! My hubby knows how much I love Italian food! (When Giada is on Food Network, leave me alone!!) It’s getting cooler out and although a big bowl of soup is great, a platter of meatballs atop hills of spaghetti and tomato sauce is right up my alley!

Spaghetti and Meatballs topped with a homemade Parmesan crisp!

1 lb ground beef

1 lb ground veal

1/2 pound ground Italian sausage

2 slices white bread, broken into small 1/2 inch pieces (or you can use any stale bread

2 garlic cloves chopped

2 eggs
1 teaspoon fresh basil

1 pinch red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons fresh parsley chopped
1/4-1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

½ teaspoon lemon zest
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil

½ cup beef stock


Mix all ingredients gently in a large bowl until well combined, clean fingers work best. Be careful not to overmix!

Roll meatballs about the size of ping pong balls.

Place in shallow baking dish and cover with beef stock. Cover pan in foil and bake for 20 minutes. Add to your favorite sauce and top spaghetti!!
