My mom used to make these meatballs whenever we had spaghetti, and they are still my favorite meatballs! I use either ground turkey or ground chicken breast whenever I make these instead of the traditional ground beef, and they taste just as good! I also use this recipe to make an Italian flavored hamburger with a slice of Provolone cheese melted over the top. YUM!
