How to make Mmmeatballs. I love the binding agent in this recipe. Ricotta cheese instead of eggs or bread crumbs.  Enjoy!! Mix all until combined. Roll into balls (size is your preference). I use a technique where I throw the ball hard from hand to hand, removing all air pockets, then shape. Fry in about a 1/2 inch of EVOO until all sides are browned. Add to your favorite sauce and simmer for at least an hour, and up to 3 hours.
