Meatballs in broth with vegetables

The preparation of meatballs in broth is very simple.

For the meatballs: put the minced meat in a large bowl, the egg, grated Parmesan, chopped parsley, the bread crumb soaked in milk and squeezed, season with salt and pepper and mix everything until you get a homogeneous mixture. Do not knead too much otherwise the mixture will compact excessively and the meatballs will be hard.

Making small round meatballs, all of the same size and set them aside. Wash and clean all the vegetables. Cut carrot into small pieces, Onion, celery and leek. Chop the parsley and cut and cut the potatoes in half. Put in a saucepan carrots, celery, Leek, Onion and add approximately 1,5 liters of water.

Season with salt, cover and bring to a boil: cook for about 15 minutes, then add the tomatoes cut in half, parsley, potatoes. Dip the meatballs in the boiling broth, one at a time. Cook the meatballs in broth with vegetables for another 40 minutes. Serve the meatballs with vegetables, hot broth and, If you like, a little grated Parmesan cheese. When I was little, my mother also made me a pasta with broth. Bon appétit!


MATCHING: today we recommend a wine from Puglia, a Salento Igt rosato. In particular, We suggest a "Girofle", a wine produced by the company "Monks". A fresh wine and decided at the same time, with aromas of clove.
