Authentic Italian Meatballs for #SundayFunday
Welcome to #SundayFunday! Wendy from A Day In The Life on The Farm invited fellow bloggers to kick back, relax, and share something tasty and fun each weekend. "Sunday should be a Family Funday.

Sue from Palatable Pastime invited us to: "Choose a recipe that is Roman or Italian to celebrate the month of August and pay tribute to the 1st Roman Emperor, the namesake of August."
I opted for meatballs! Who doesn't need another good "go-to" meatball recipe? Ok so I don't claim to know anything about the authenticity of this recipe, but someone claims it is, so I'm going with it! All I know is they are super tender, and really delicious. Perfect for meatball subs or spaghetti!

1⁄4 cup milk
1⁄2 cup breadcrumbs
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon fresh parsley
1/2 TBS minced garlic
1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix by hand. Shape the meatballs into about 1" round balls.
- Bring a large pot of your favorite marinara sauce to a low simmer and add the meatballs and gently submerge them in liquid.
- Cover and simmer on low (checking to be sure sauce isn't sticking) for about 1 1/2 - 3 hours, depending on how fast they're simmering.
- Serve in sandwiches, over pasta, etc.!
