 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           fresh bread crumbs
      1/3  cup           milk
      1/3  cup           olive oil
    1      cup           minced onion
      1/2  pound         ground beef
      1/2  pound         pork
      1/2  pound         veal
    1      large         egg -- lightly beaten
      1/3  cup           freshly grated Parmesan
      1/4  cup           minced fresh parsley
    2      large         cloves of garlic -- peeled and minced
                         Salt and pepper
    5      -6 cups       marinara sauce (see above recipe)
 In a small bowl combine the bread crumbs and milk and let soak for 
 10 minutes. In a large skillet heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil 
 and cook onion for 3 minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool.
 In a large bowl combine ground meats, soaked bread crumbs, 
 cooked onion, egg, Parmesan, parsley, garlic and salt and 
 pepper and mix well. Shape mixture into 1 1/2-inch diameter 
 balls and set on a plate.
 In the same large skillet heat 2 more tablespoons of olive 
 oil and cook the meatballs in 3-4 batches until browned on 
 all sides, about 10 minutes. When meatballs are browned, 
 transfer them to a side plate, add more oil if necessary and 
 continue to cook remaining meatballs. Add the browned 
 meatballs to the simmering marinara sauce and heat for 
 10-15 minutes. Serve meatballs and sauce with cooked 
 spaghetti or pasta of choice.
