Serve with a green salad and Garlic Bread Alla Mom.
(To simplify even further, I'm toying with the idea of making the meatballs out of Owen's Sage Sausage, but I haven't tried it yet to see how that would taste. I like mine a whole lot anyway. They're a simplified version of my mom's; she makes hers with eggs the real way.)
1 lb ground beef
Italian bread crumbs
As much ground fennel as you can stand to grind
Combine, form into tiny meatballs and brown in olive oil. Cook pasta, top with Newman's Garlic & Basil, sprinkle with tiny meatballs. Yay!
