canned whole tomatoes in juice (not puree)
ground beef, pork and veal
eggs, grated cheese, garlic, onion, parsley, basil, oregano, a carrot, salt and pepper.
First step mix, roll and fry the meatballs in olive oil. I cook the entire sauce in one pot, I think this is first most important step because all those brown bits on the bottom of the pan are full of flavor.
**we NEVER call it gravy!!
