This recipe comes from Next Door to the Chicken Market, the second Italian recipe book written by Vita Greco. The new 140 page recipe book contains more than 100 new recipes of all the Italian dishes made by Vita Greco and her family . . . appetizers, main dishes, pastas, chicken, meats, vegetables, soups, salads, sandwiches, sauces, gravies, breads, desserts, specialty items, and even a Wine Chart.


1 1/2 Lbs equal amounts of Beef, Veal, and Pork
2 Large Eggs
Parsley, a lot cut up
Black Pepper to taste
1/4 Cup Grated Cheese
1/4 Cup Bread Crumbs
Fresh Garlic, about 4 Cloves, sliced
Olive Oil

Gravy - for recipe <click here>

  • Mix all but Olive Oil together and form Meatballs.
  • Fry Meatballs in Olive Oil, and brown outsides only . . . they will cook in the Gravy and be softer and taste better.
  • As they are done, scoop them up, and put them in the Sauce. It's sauce now. When the meat is in, it becomes GRAVY. (See recipe)
  • Simmer the Gravy (with the Meatballs) for at least 2 - 3 hours, stirring every 15 minutes or so. Be sure to scrape the bottom and sides of the pot while stirring.

Serves 4 - 6
