Ingredients

1 cup cornmeal (polenta) 130 g
2 cups milk, partly skimmed, 2% 500 mL
900 g ground pork, lean
900 g ground beef, extra-lean
1 1/2 cup ricotta cheese, light 300 g
2 cups Parmesan cheese 100 g
2 eggs size large
1 cup Italian parsley, fresh, chopped 80 g
salt
ground pepper to taste
8 cups chicken broth, low-sodium 2 L
16 servings Veggie Pasta Sauce
1 kg fettuccine
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, for the pasta 85 mL

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F.
  2. In a small bowl whisk the cornmeal with the milk.
  3. In a large bowl mix the pork with the beef. Add the cornmeal-milk mixture then mix well. Add the ricotta, parmesan, egg and parsley, mixing thoroughly with each addition. Add salt and pepper to taste. You may test the seasoning by cooking a small amount of the mixture in a frying pan. Adjust seasoning to your taste.
  4. Using your hands, form the mixture into even-sized meatballs (3-4 meatballs per serving) then arrange the balls in a deep baking pan.
  5. Bring the broth to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add enough broth to cover the meatballs in the baking pan. Cook in the middle until the meatballs are cooked through, about 30 min.
  6. Meanwhile, warm up the pasta sauce in a large pan over low heat.
  7. A few minutes before the end of the cooking time for the meatballs, cook the pasta.
  8. Drain the fettuccine then put them back in the pasta cooking pot and drizzle with the olive oil. Mix well then serve with the meatballs and sauce.
