These meatballs are simple, versatile, and packed with savory, garlicky flavor! YUM!! Use them for spaghetti, meatball sandwiches, Italian wedding soup, baked ziti...I think this recipe will serve 35 people. :-) It would also freeze well for those of you who do OAMC. The lady who gave me this recipe used to be a caterer, and she told me that one of her clients said these were better than his Italian wife's own meatballs! I guess that's saying something. Anyway, I really like these, and if you love garlic, so will you! Cooking time is for one batch of meatballs, but of course it will take longer to make all of them. Prep time doesn't include peeling and mincing the three heads of garlic, which is admittedly a somewhat lengthy process. Oh well, it's certainly worth it!!
