I personally am not a big meatball person, but my husband is. Do you know what that means? I now make barbecued meatballs, spaghetti and meatballs, and deliciously amazing Italian Meatballs that my buddy Enza shared with me. The best part, this is a family recipe from her mother, who is from Italy!
Homemade Italian Meatballs
A Family Recipe
Oh yes! An authentic Italian Meatballs Recipe just for you. It’s an easy homemade meatballs recipe too. We like easy and stress free in the kitchen, don’t you? Roll up these Italian Meatballs for your next holiday, get together, or family dinner!
You can serve these Italian Meatballs alone, tossed in a sauce piled up on top of spaghetti, or even in a bun drizzled with sauce and topped with mozzarella! These are now hubby’s favorite Italian Meatballs and thankfully they are pretty easy because I have a feeling I will be making them a lot.
