"She'd start the meatballs early in the morning, and they'd simmer for a long, long time in the sauce, along with beef bones she'd roasted in the oven, and the house would fill with the most incredible aroma. She'd give me one meatball to try before the meal was ready, but that's it; after that, she'd shoo me away when I asked for more, maybe put some sauce on a plate to sop up with bread, which kept me happy."~Lou Di Palo.
I certainly can relate to that. When I make a big pot of meatballs and sausage, I'm tasting and dunking bread the whole time it's cooking. When it comes time to eat, I'm full! This is quite different from my Sunday Gravy , but if it's grandma's....it's got to be good! The addition of the ricotta cheese makes the meat balls very tender and juicy - the addition of provolone cheese makes these extra special!
