Mix a the ingredients together in a large bowl of use your mix master. (my favorite tool). Let it stand for a half hour. Form into medium size meatballs.
Fry in the olive oil. Gently turning them as they brown up. Or place on a baking sheet on top of foil and bake for 1/2 hour at 350 degrees. Gently place into your own Hot spaghetti sauce and cook for 1 hour on medium to low heat.
If you don't know how to make your own sauce. I have a recipe for that too. Or you can use jar sauce and reduce the cooking time in half on the stove.
