For the Meatballs:

  • 1 pound meatloaf mix mixture of ground beef, pork and veal
  • cup talian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Romano or Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced yellow onion
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Remaining Dish:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ small onion finely chopped
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 28 ounce can whole peeled tomatoes, pureed
  • 4 leaves fresh basil
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella thinly sliced


  • Make the Meatballs: In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix with your hands until thoroughly combined. Shape into 2-inch meatballs.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and cook, turning frequently, until browned all over, about 10 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the meatballs to a plate.
  • Reduce the heat to medium. Add the onion and red pepper flakes, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is tender, about 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes and basil leaves; reduce the heat to maintain a simmer and cook, stirring frequently, until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 8 minutes.
  • Return the meatballs (and any accumulated juices) to the skillet, cover and simmer, turning once, until the meatballs are cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  • Preheat the broiler. Arrange the mozzarella slices on top of the meatballs. Broil until the mozzarella is melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Garnish with additional fresh basil, if desired. Serve warm.
