Why I Love This Recipe

Giada made these on her show. I made some changes and I came up with a meatball that is requested all the time at my house! They are great in any marinara sauce on top of pasta.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 medium onion, grated (over bowl to get the juice)
1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley leaves
7 medium basil leaves chopped
1 large egg
3 tablespoons ketchup
3 cloves garlic, grated (over bowl)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
2/3 cup grated Parmesan
6 ounces ground beef
6 ounces ground veal
6 ounces ground pork
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil


Directions

Whisk together first 9 ingredients in large bowl.


Stir in cheese and bread crumbs.


Mix in the beef, veal and pork (don't over mix it makes them tough)


Shape into 1 1/4 inch balls.


Heat oil in heavy frying pan over medium - high heat.
