That recipe just doesn't strike me as Italian IMHO. The Med is a big area and encompasses a whole lot of different cuisines, not just Italian. This recipe reminds me more of a Spanish tapas dish than Italian.

I for one would love a good Swedish meatball recipe like the church ladies used to make.

Cooks Illustrated has a recipe for Swedish meatballs that I just love. I reduced the oil by a LOT (can't give details - it was last winter) and served it over egg noodles. Per their technique, it's a little involved, but I think the ingredients are more important than the technique. Here it is:

Hey Dawg.....why don't you make these and invite me over? We can decide if they are close to being as good as the the church ladies or my Auntie Jessie?

ISO Good Meatball Recipe [FONT="Arial"]Hey Everybody, I've been looking for a good meatball recipe, does anyone have one that they wouldn't mind sharing? I've only made meatballs once from a recipe I found online, but we didn't quiet like them and they were extremely expensive to make. Open to any new recipes... Thanks, in advance!
