Italian Meatballs Are Very Tasty!
One of the tastiest meatball recipes you have ever cooked!
➡️ Italian ground beef meatballs are some of the most popular dishes in this European country and are therefore cooked quite often, especially in the northern half of the peninsula. This is because they are very tasty and pretty easy to prepare.
➡️ However, there are more Italian meatball types. Some Italian meatballs, known as polpettes, are often served sauceless and are much smaller than the meatballs you’re probably used to. Many traditional Italian meatballs are made with equal parts meat and soaked bread, as well as other ingredients such as eggs and vegetables.
➡️ As you probably already know, Italian beef meatballs are traditionally served in a typical Italian tomato sauce. Some chefs have found an ingenious way to turn the recipe into a ground beef casserole (see below).
Cooking Italian Ground Beef Meatballs Is A Breeze!
➡️ I just like to cook traditional Italian ground beef meatballs because they have some of the flavors I especially like, such as beef and tomato sauce. Italian meatballs are a classic Italian dish, made with hand-shaped meatballs that are sauteed to perfection and served with marinara sauce and, sometimes, spaghetti.
