I wanted to be a skinny little ballerina but I was a voluptuous little Italian girl whose dad had meatballs on the table every night. Lady Gaga
Chicken and Ricotta Polpettine, Pomodoro Sauce
- 1 pound ground chicken dark meat
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 4 ounces whole milk ricotta
- 1 egg beaten
- 1/3 cup grated parmesan
- 1 clove garlic mashed
- 2 grates fresh nutmeg
- sea salt and black pepper
- chopped basil and/or parsley
- 1 quart tomato sauce
Mix everything together in a large bowl by hand, except the sauce,
Form at least 16 meatballs and drop them in a hot saute pan with olive oil and butter. I generally use a nonstick pan to avoid the melting cheese sticking.
Saute till golden brown then finish in a 400 degree oven for five minutes.
Heat sauce up, add meatballs and enjoy!
