Rob's recipe for Italian meatballs

Rob's recipe for Italian meatballs

For my birthday earlier this week, Rob offered to make whatever I wanted for dinner. I requested Italian meatballs (Rob is half Italian and his mom has some amazing Italian recipes).

The meatballs were delicious, and Rob was able to jot down a version of the recipe, even though his mom and grandma don't usually measure the ingredients when they make the meatballs.

Here's how he did it.


Italian Meatballs
2 pounds ground beef
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup plain breadcrumbs
2 eggs
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 tablespoon dried basil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon pepper

Mix ingredients together - the combination should be soft. If it's too thick, add a bit of water. Form into balls and fry in a skillet with a little olive oil. Serve with pasta and red sauce.
