    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    Originally from Florence Fiorvante of Jackson Heights, NY. You can make this recipe complete with a tomato sauce, or just follow the instructions through the first step and then add to your own favorite sauce. The meatballs themselves are delicious. Woman's World Magazine, September 28, 2004.
