How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400° F. In a large bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients, 1 cup of the Parmesan, and 2 teaspoons of the pepper. Mix just to combine. Shape the mixture into 16 to 18 large meatballs (each should consist of about 3/4 cup of meat). Place on a baking pan and set aside.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta with the remaining Parmesan and the remaining pepper; set aside.

Step 3

Bake the meatballs for 20 minutes in upper third of oven. Remove from oven and turn on broiler. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the ricotta mixture onto each meatball. Broil 3 to 5 minutes or until the ricotta just starts to brown. Serve the meatballs with jarred marinara sauce, or Chunky Marinara Sauce.
  This recipe makes 16-18 large meatballs.
