1/2 C. breadcrumbs or 1 C. chopped crusty white bread
1/4 C. chopped lovage (parsley, if lovage is not available)
1 T. garlic powder

1 onion, cut in half
3 cloves garlic

3 cans diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
a bit of water

Combine all ingredients in bowl and form into desired size. Add a bit of oil in bottom of pan and brown the meatballs. Add sausage if you wish with one onion, cut in half and 3 cloves garlic. When meatballs are brown on all sides, add 3 cans diced tomatoes, 1 can tomato paste
and a bit of water. Bring to a slow boil; turn down to low heat. Be sure to stir bottom often. Cover and cook for about 2 hours. Adjust taste with salt and pepper if desired.
I love lovage! It has such a rounded flavor to everything. While in Germany, I discovered the richness of the wonderful herb. One surefire way to thrill your Sunday Brunch guest, is to take the stalks and use
them as straws for your Bloody Mary's... They will for sure be a hit.
