Instructions Checklist
  • Combine ground beef, ricotta cheese, egg, finely chopped sundried tomatoes, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix well with hands. Roll mixture into shape of golf balls, wetting hands if necessary; flatten slightly. Lightly dredge meatballs in flour; shake off excess. In large frying pan, heat olive oil over high heat. Add halved sundried tomatoes; stir 1 minute. Add meatballs; fry until golden (3–4 minutes per side). When flipping meatballs over, add garlic; cook 1 minute. Add wine; bring to boil. Reduce to simmer; cook until sauce is thickened (5–7 minutes). To serve, place 4 meatballs in a bowl with sauce and 1 baguette slice.
