Step 1

In a medium mixing bowl mix all ingredients until well incorporated. Roll meatballs to desired size

Step 2

Place the meatballs in your tomato sauce and simmer 30 minutes. Turn them occasionally so that they get color on all sides, making sure to keep them basted with the sauce.

Rubbing your hands with olive oil before forming the meatballs keeps them from sticking to your hands.
