Potato and Spinach Bocconcini

By mike sabella msabella

Growing up in a Sicilian family in San Francisco's North Beach was special. I spent every Sunday at my Nonna's with my family, 27 cousins, 4 aunts, 4 uncles, my Nonna and her mother Nonna-Wawa. Nonna would feed all 44 of us! I loved to help her roll the Bocconcini and watch her fry them in butter. They tasted great too!
