Italian
Serves: 
2 servings

Italian small plates are the focus at D’Angelo Pizza, Wine Bar, Tapas, and these Tuscan-style meatballs are one of the menu’s signatures. Owner Angelo Elia also operates the more upscale and formal Casa D’Angelo, but this eatery’s casual, relaxed atmosphere and affordable prices make it a destination for social dining.

½ cup breadcrumbs
¼ cup milk
1 lb. ground veal
½ cup grated pecorino cheese
1 egg, beaten
¼ cup finely chopped onion
2 tsp. chopped Italian parsley
1 tsp. salt
Homemade marinara sauce 

Steps

2. In large bowl, combine veal, pecorino cheese, egg, onion, parsley and salt; mix lightly to blend. Add breadcrumb mixture; hand mix until combined.

3. Divide mixture and form into six large meatballs. Place meatballs on rimmed sheet pan and add ¼ cup water.

4. Bake 20 to 25 min. Serve with marinara sauce.

There was a time when healthy food meant counting calories, omitting carbs, giving up sugar and going fat-free—in other words, it was all about deprivation.

It’s all about balance: good fats, healthy carbs, better sweeteners, wholesome ingredients and satisfying flavor enhancements. It means food that customers can feel good about, at the same time that they’re enjoying the dining experience.

We do a monthly Meal In The Life, where residents of different cultures serve as our ambassadors and help coordinate the program. A couple of months ago it was Russia. We had a Russian-themed menu and a resident ambassador who got to wear a button and talk about the culture. We do an hors d’oeuvres session and a food demo, followed by a full-blown meal the next day in our dining room. The servers wear something special, and we have special music.
