Gangster Meatballs

Simcha Fisher - published on 09/14/13

We recently rewatched Goodfellas, and, what can I say? We’re older and fatter, so what we took away from it was:  we have to  make those meatballs.

Okay, so we didn’t do this. But we did go out in the rain with flashlights to harvest some fresh basil. So hardcore!

We are having family over tomorrow, and are making a quadruple recipe.  They are the meatballs of happiness and delight.  You must make them now.  Here is the recipe.   You can thank me later when you recover from your meat delight coma.
