Sausage meatballs with pasta!!!!

 For those who haven't caught this recipe before..This one's for you!!  Make mini ones for Super Bowl..  Spice up your recipe with hot sausage!!!

Repost:  I made these Sausage meatballs again yesterday and they are definitely an easy meatball recipe to make over and over for a nice change to my favorite recipe for traditional meatballs.  No pasta needed!  Some Italian bread might be nice!  Enjoy!!

  Mom always made her own homemade sausage when we were growing up..She would buy fresh pork, grind it in her meat grinder and season it with her special seasonings.  When I was at the market I found some really nice lean mild  Italian sausage so today I'm adding a little of this and that to it making some medium size meatball shapes and baking them for later use..I freeze all types of meatballs because they come in handy for so many quick sauce meals..I absolutely dislike store bought meatballs..It is just something that I personally can not eat..  You won't see me eating meatballs out for that reason..I know what ingredients are in my meatballs but not in theirs!

*Good quality sausage required.

**Note:  You can make mini meatballs and use as an appetizer in your favorite sauce.

 Happy Cooking!


Tonight we had Cappellini pasta with some of my sausage meatballs...Bon Appetit!

Mom used to toss her pasta in a pot and serve in a pasta bowl!  We roughed it a bit as the picture demonstrates.

1 lb. mild or hot ground(loose) Italian sausage (store bought or check out my sausage recipe on the blog)
1/2 cup shredded Romano or Parmesan Cheese( I prefer shredded cheese in this recipe but you can use finely grated as well)
1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
1/4 cup parsley
1 egg

Mix above ingredients.  Bake at 400 degrees until browned slightly..Freeze or add to your favorite red sauce.
Makes approximately 20 medium size meatballs per pound.
