I actually used to weigh close to 300 pounds……….
But I’ve controlled myself.
The toppings do impart a lot of flavor to the meat, and they also protect the top of the meat from drying out. I also use the cooked the veggie to dress up a sandwich or just good mixed in with some rice.
I also grill my meatballs or smoke them, the turn out very good. Toss a rope of Italian sausage on the grill or smoker as well, and then top your Sunday pasta dinner with all that meat, and you’ll make your Sicilian relatives very happy ( I know I would be).
If you also want my recipe, I’d be glad to post it. Just don’t forget to add the pine nuts to them. Sicilian meatballs wouldn’t be complete without them.
Thank you guys for all the kind comments.
