  • 1
    2 pounds Ricotta cheese
    1-2 cups Breadcrumbs

    1/4 cup Fresh parsley (finely chopped)
    1 Clove garlic (crushed and finely diced)

    Black Pepper and salt to taste
    Milk
    In a large bowl, beat eggs, gently stir in ricotta, parsley, garlic, black pepper, then add bread crumbs and grated cheese. Stir gently. If too thick, add a little milk. Taste to see if salt is needed.
  • 2
    Olive oil for frying
    Flour for coating
    4 cups Marinara Sauce
    Form balls the size of a meatball. Flour,then lightly flatten, then fry to light golden brown. Prepare either a baking pan or a large frying pan with a layer of Marinara sauce. Make sure ricotta balls are at least an inch from each other because they are going to expand. Cover balls with sauce and grated cheese.
