I made this recipe over a year ago and the first couple of times I made it were a bit disastrous because I didn’t follow the recipe 100 percent. However, I made these today and they turned out great.

The recipe says that it yields about 20 meatballs, but when I made them, I ended up with 12 – it all depends on whichever size you’d like. I want to try this recipe again but by making a smaller version of the meatballs so that I can include them in minestrone soup!

Let me know if you try this recipe out! As usual, would love to know if you made any additions or substituted any of the ingredients that I used.
