What To Serve With Meatballs?


I've noticed a lot of traffic to the blog looking for what to serve with meatballs. Interesting search! For me it's always been a dish of macaroni! Traditionally we eat our macaroni and then a platter of meat is served consisting of Italian sausage, pork blades or pork spareribs, and meatballs. Occasionally there will also be braciole. All the meat has been browned and then finished cooking in the sauce. Other ways to serve meatballs would be in soup. Little tiny meatballs are often put into chicken soup, beef soup, Italian Wedding soup and stracciatella soups.An easy use of leftover meatballs is Meatball subs. My kids love meatball subs! Lately I've noticed several Italian restaurants serving meatballs as an appetizer. A few do it well, and others not so good. A local restaurant does it well. They serve you two very very large meatballs in marinara, topped with ricotta cheese and then roasted in their pizza oven. They are amazing. The above photo is a picture of them. I would definitely do this as an appetizer for a party! When I order them at the restaurant I usually follow it up with one of their pizza's! It really could be a meal by itself though with a salad on the side! If you need a meatball recipe,scroll down and look over to the bottom right side of the blog. My "recipe" is there. I wish I could offer measurements, but it's just not the way I cook..but if you use the fresh ingredients and follow the steps, you'll have a mouthwatering meatball in no time! Just add more or less of what you like!

  1. Sometimes I make huge meatballs, slice them but keep the round shape, and top them with 3 different kinds of italian cheese...mozzarella,ricotta, shredded provolone and a sprinkle of parsley...BOOM ! Its the bomb in my mouth, and sometimes its a meal ! Cheers from NYC ;-)

    The meatballs with ricotta on top sound great. My husband and I found a restaurant in Las Vegas, J R's, that had fantastic meatballs as an appetizer. It was served with a side of ricotta. Sadly the restaurant has closed-- Sure wish I had their recipe--the ricotta was so sweet. Maybe homemade, or sweetened with something? I have looked high and low for a similar recipe but can't find anything. Any ideas??

  3. More than likely it had either cinnamon or nutmeg in it! It's a regional thing, but many areas of Italy add either of those to the ricotta in many recipes. My family uses the cinnamon! It's only a small pinch, but that is all that is needed to give it that little something that most people just can't put their finger on!!

  23. Watch makers are becoming smart to the truth that women change their minds, and wish diversity in
    fashion. Some models called "super quartz" are one of the most accurate and call for
    a bit higher price, while others could be quite reasonable.
    The gold accents, slightly quirky feel, and
    durable rubber links put a touch from the old
    school charm on this new school timepiece.

  27. It all comes down to how much larger the tank would have
    to be installed with additional safety features before
    being released for the public use. Traditional non-hybrid used cars
    in los angeles have a traditional gearbox so there is definitely a
    market. Now, you need a personal injury lawyer to help you find something they like.

  28. To accomplish that, the blades from the blender have being completely
    submerged into the soup and after turning for
    the power, the blender has to get moved all over the
    country soup having a stirring motion with the hands.
    This should help introduce them to an array of tastes which will help
    prevent the fussy toddler stage since they
    will have tasted most from the foods you eat. This model
    in the Braun Multiquick hand blender starts off with all the basic blender attachment with
    splash guard for mixing powder packages with milk,
    sour cream or cream cheese into wonderful drinks, sauces and soups.

  29. If your hose is too short, or you want a longer power cable, you
    can probably get replacements, rather than having to buy a
    new cleaner. And while they are extremely efficient machines that clean large areas in record time,
    they are also easy to operate for that spilled ashtray or other debris that needs
    to be picked up quickly. For bagless vacuum machines, check
    the compartment where dust is stored.

  30. A�But in fact, the history of Legos toys dates back many more years.
    Somehow, the adults are also fascinated to have them for their own collection even when they no longer play with them.
    But are you aware that Lego also produce electric toy trains and that they not only have trains, but also locomotives,
    track, rolling stock, train stations, signal houses and a whole load of other track side buildings and they all have
    the logo construction theme running through them.
