These meatballs, made by my paternal grandmother, Josephine, were so coveted that the family would gather by the dozens when they were being served. Josephine (Romeo) Della Vecchia came from Calabria - the southern tip of Italy. Meatballs, or polpette were common there (and still are) and simple to make.
