When the kids see me rolling meatballs in between my palms, I'll be sure to hear them shouting, "Polpettine" (Italian of meatballs)! They love them alright. I really believe that kids and meatballs go well together and I think it's the shape of small balls that get them. Easy target, those little ones. I sometimes make some Chicken, Spinach and Parmigiano Reggiano Balls With Sautéed Tomatoes and my daughter, who refuses to eat her vegetables eat a lot of them. I never tell her that mixed in those chicken balls are healthy spinach!

For this willingness in eating food shaped like balls, I make sure we have meatballs often, with different ingredients if I can manage to create recipes that they can love. The Polpettine al Sugo (Meatballs in Tomato Sauce) will always be their favorite, hands down. In fact, whenever they stay in the houses of their grandmother and grandaunt, they always prepare those delicious Italian meatballs for them. I myself cannot resist stealing one with my fork too.
But if there are Italian meatballs at home, I also prepare some with distinguishing Asian flavors and they are wonderful with the teriyaki sauce that are so pronounced in every bite. Love, love these meatballs. Did I actually write love twice? If you like Asian flavors, then you might say love twice too. Enjoy this simple and tasty recipe!
