Years ago I had an Italian neighbor who became a close friend. I always commented on her delicious meatballs and one day she shared the recipe with me. I have made them ever since about the same way. You can vary the meats using what's on hand, but I usually select lean ground beef, turkey, chicken or lamb, with an equal amount of sausage; or 1 part beef with 1 part turkey sausage. The base recipe can be used with your favorite pasta sauce. Recently I served these meatballs with spinach ravioli and alfredo sauce and they were scrumptious!
