“I got this recipe from my friend. She was from Italy, stayed in the US a couple of years and then returned to Italy. I feel fortunate to have learned the way to make a true Italian meatball.The unusual ingredient is the mashed potato to bind the meat together. Adds great consistency and flavor.I make this with ground turkey and works great too.Thanks Marissa!”
