  1. First, let me say I love your recipes/videos. Anything to help keep traditions going. As far as this recipe goes, I'd like to offer a suggestion. Lightly sautéed Pancetta would work better, IMHO. Baked or fried meat would add more flavor. You don't bake or fry your meatballs first? That's like eating boiled meat. No thanks! It's just not how I'd prepare it. I guess it comes from tradition/what you grew up with. It's all good! Ciao!

  2. I Liked to fry my meatballs first it make it taste so much better! then I put a little bit of the meat ball grease in there and a whole big can of chicken broth I like my to taste stocky and always cook the pasta separate if you put it in the soup and let it cook it will soak up all the broth I put my pasta in bowls seprate then add the broth I use ronzoni alphabets the best

  3. This also reminds me of my childhood.  My Nonna lived with us and did all the cooking.  She used all beef in her meatballs and as such putting them directly into the soup creates an unappetizing foam.  So she eliminated that by par boiling them in water before adding them to the soup.  Also, I saw that you brought the soup to a boil.  We find that doing that makes the broth cloudy.  We find that when we just keep it to a simmer, that won't happen.  Primarily, however, your recipe is the same as ours.  Love the episodes with your Nonna and the beautiful way in which you relate to each other.  I was the same way with my Nonna.

  4. I absolutely love this recipe. My nonna makes this around every holiday mostly thanksgiving and I always thought it was a much more difficult recipe so that's why I never attempted to make it but next coming holiday it's my turn and I wanna thank you for sharing this with us ! It definitely takes me back to my childhood and I couldn't be more excited to make this. Thank you !!!

  5. I am just wondering if it is possible to use ice cream scoop to make small meatballs? Considering you're using ice cream scoop for every cupcake or muffin etc. Or it's not good to use that? thank you very much~

  6. For those who don't know what escarole is, it's a semi sweet vegi, it can be served in so many various ways, very simple one among most Italians is boiled till tender, drain and add olive oil, oh you wil need a fresh baguette and OMG.
