Good Meatballs for Spaghetti

1 1/2 lb ground beef
3/4 cup soft bread crumbs
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp dry parsley
1 tsp garlic puree
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

Mix all together. It’s sometimes easier to mix this with your hands,but can be really cold! Form small balls and fry in a little olive oil. Add to spaghetti sauce and serve over pasta.

I sometimes make my meatballs into little meat patties because I’m too impatient to wait and cook them on all sides. Tastes just the same and cooks quicker.

You can also just drop them into the spaghetti sauce without frying them and let them cook in the sauce.  Just make them really small. (My friend Connie’s Mom, Mary used to make meatballs that way and she is Italian – so it must be legit.)
