Made with ground beef, pork and bits of prosciutto, these hearty Roman meatballs are simmered in a tomato sauce and paired with gnocchi alla Romana (see related recipe at left). To ensure tender meatballs, don’t overwork the ingredients; mix them gently until just combined.


cups fresh bread crumbs
½ cup milk
4 oz. finely chopped prosciutto
1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. ground pork
2 eggs, lightly beaten
½ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
2 Tbs. finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 tsp. finely chopped fresh oregano
6 Tbs. finely chopped fresh basil
5 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. kosher salt, plus more, to taste
½ tsp. freshly ground pepper, plus more, to taste
5 Tbs. olive oil
1 yellow onion, diced
1 can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes with juices
