Now synonymous with Italian comfort food, meatballs are actually a relatively new phenomenon and, like many Italian dishes, they have a unique backstory. Italian immigrants coming to the United States in the early 20th century discovered a plethora of inexpensive ingredients, including meat and dairy, and created the heartwarming dish of spaghetti and meatballs with marinara sauce. Now meatballs are a dinner tradition in many Italian-American homes, as well as Italian restaurants all over the world. Usually made by rolling ground meat such as pork, beef, and veal with breadcrumbs, pecorino cheese,and Italian spices, meatballs are cooked in hearty sauces on the stovetop. For your convenience, Supermarket Italy offers a variety of pre-cooked meatballs that have the same premium ingredients without the lengthy prep time.
