    **Jubes**'s Note:

    An Italian style meatball in tomato sauce. For gluten-free option use gluten-free bread and tomato puree. Can also use an Italian style tomato pasta sauce in this recipe such as Bertolli's Provisto Sugo. Either ground/minced chicken or beef can be used for this recipe. The meatballs can be either pan-fried or deep fryed

    For the Meatballs

    For the Tomato Sauce


    1. 1
      Using a large mixing bowl- add the minced chicken or beef, the egg, cheese, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      Add the crumbed fresh bread and milk and mix until well combined. You can use a food processor to just add the bread and milk and process until well mixed.
    3. 3
      Add the bread/milk mixture to the chicken or beef mix. Combine well.
    4. 4
      Refrigerate the meatball mixture for 30 minutes.
    5. 5
      Using damp hands, shape the meatball mixture into about 25 small balls.
    6. 6
      Fry the meatballs using a medium heat and then drain them on absorbent kitchen paper. I like to pan-fry mine.
    7. 7
      Meanwhile, heat the olive oil and cook the shallots for about 1 minute. Add the tomato puree and bring to the boil. Add the meatballs and simmer for 25-30 minutes. Stir occassionally.
    8. 8
      Serve hot with some cooked pasta.

      Yum! This was so simple and so good. I used asiago cheese and served these over spaghetti with a side salad and garlic bread. Thanks Jubes for a nice dinner. Made for ZWT7 for the Emerald City Shakers.

      A delightfully full flavoured recipe - what makes these meatballs a little different from the run of the mill ones, is the addition of the cheese to them, we loved that! I pan fried mine before adding them to the tomato sauce and I served the whole dish over the top of Alsace style egg noodles. We also ate this meatball dish with home-made crusty bread for a very satisfying and tasty meal. Made for the Aussie/Kiwi swap #22 - merci Jubes! FT:-)
