Simple and authentic. Combine 1 lb. ground beef, 4 oz. ricotta cheese, 2 garlic cloves, 2 shallots minced, 1 c. grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, 1 c. panko bread crumbs, 1 egg, pinch of salt and pepper. Mash together until it forms a ball. Then heat some sauce over medium heat. Roll 1-2' balls and simmer in the sauce for 10 minutes with some water. Let the meat brown and turn them over in the pan to brown the other side. Plate them and top with fresh parsley and some grated cheese. Now, that's amore!
