  • Make the meatballs: Combine meats, garlic, breadcrumbs, cheese, parsley, eggs, 2 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a bowl; mix together using 2 forks until just combined. Roll into 1-inch balls; transfer to a baking sheet.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Working in batches and adding more oil as necessary, cook meatballs until browned on all sides and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Add basil to tomato sauce. Serve meatballs warm, topped with sauce. Garnish with parsley.
