    • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
    • 2 eggs
    • Salt and pepper, to taste

    • 2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix with your hands until thoroughly combined.
    • 3. Shape into large meatballs (I use a heaping large cookie scoop, which is 3 tablespoons) and place on the baking sheet.
    • 4. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn the meatballs over, reduce the oven temperature to 300 degrees F and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
    • 5. Place the meatballs in a simmering pot of sauce for at least 1 hour before serving.
