2lbs of lean ground meat. I used chicken and pork.
1 small handful of minced parsley
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp granulated garlic (or 2-3 cloves grated)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
3 slices of bread soaked in about 1/4 cup of milk*
Salt and Pepper to taste
Mix well and form into meatballs. Do not overwork the meatballs when you shape them so they stay tender.
*Note: you can use bread crumbs if you like to bind the meatballs. But I prefer soaking a few slices of bread in milk until they soften and you can "mush" with your fingers. This gives the meatball a very tender texture.
One medium onion diced
4-5 cloves of garlic grated or minced well
2 jalapeno peppers seeded and diced
8oz of mushrooms diced (optional)
season with some salt and pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp of red chili flakes (or to taste)
1-2 tsp of brown sugar (to taste)
Note: You can decide on the texture of your sauce at this point. If you want it "chunky" you can leave it like it is right now. I wanted my sauce a little more smooth so I used a hand blender and I pulverized the sauce a bit.
I added some sauce to the pasta and served more sauce and the meatballs on top.
