product details


In a rather large pan, heat the sieved tomato and add a teaspoon of salt and a little sugar to soften the taste of the tomato passata.
In a bowl, add ground meat, the speck chopped as finely as possible, smoked mozzarella grated with a griddle with large holes, milk (for the amount of the latter, adjust, however, depending on the consistency you want to give the meatballs, ie softer or harder), the whole egg and salt.
Add the fennel seeds and mix the dough well. Form the meatballs and, as soon as the sieved tomatoes begin to simmer, add them to the tomato sauce. Cook for about 30/40 minutes. Serve hot dumplings, accompanied by potato puree.
