    Delicious and easy. Dough is so easy to work with. Wonderful for a brunch. This is so similar to my Calabrian husband's fraguni (big socks). I like this version even better.

    You will find the recipe by searching "spaghetti and meatballs from the DiSantos". I did a search for "meatballs" and when the results came up I clicked on "The Martha Show" shown under "source" at the top. Good luck!!

    I thought on the show Martha encouraged viewers to check out all of their recipes, which would be on her website. OK, how do I find them? Is there another search engine - besides Recipe Search- somewhere here that I'm not finding? And when I typed in 'Scavone', it only turned up 4 entries - this recipe and 3 other places on the site where the sisters' names are mentioned in conjunction with this same episode. Help !

    Instead of mozzarella, we use fresh cheese, sometimes called basket cheese. We also use a combination of meats: genoa salami, prosciutto, and sopresota. Forget the sauce!

    I too got a recipe from my Italian Grandmother. She was from the Naples area and called it Pizza Piena. She almost always used a hard peppered ham, not sausage, and a more firm form of ricotta diced instead of mozzarella. I can only find this ricotta in specialty shops in the Italian area of town. I concur, tradition calls for eating at room temp or cold and never with sauce. Buona Pasqua!
