Baked Pepperoni Meatballs with Ricotta may be a food that you have never heard of, but read on, as the ease of the recipe will mystify you as to why you have not been making these all along. As a young girl I spent time with my grandmother in her kitchen, just watching her craft and create traditional and truly authentic Italian Foods. My grandmother was a young lady when she arrived to America and she had brought her spirited recipes with her! Cooking was not just about punching the food out, plate after plate, but rather a curated event, that included hand-rolling, truly artisan like meals with chopping, cutting, slicing and all fresh ingredients. The way that the Baked Pepperoni Meatballs with Ricotta are prepared in fact is the reason that they have such a robust, flavor. In fact, the flavor is so good that I bet you will be gathering all the sauce with leftover bread! I have crafted a recipe her memory with some crazy tradition wrapped inside. The sauce flavor is more bold, rich, intense and so savory. This is my recipe of Baked Pepperoni Meatballs With Ricotta and how to achieve a flavor beyond perfection, as I lavishly live life food out loud.
My grandmother was an artisan, hands-down. Queen of the kitchen, and very culinary-sophisticated, while achieving simple meals, and yes that mixture is possible. Watching my grandmother craft a hand-rolled meatball was a work of art. The kneading of meat, the meshing of ingredients, the seasonings, the rolling technique all truly created her mastery in the meatball kingdom and while I won’t pretend that I will ever achieve the flavor she did, what I have curated is a meatball that is sumptuous, light, well-shaped and will dress that pasta on your plate like it’s in a tuxedo.
Tools Of The Trade
One thing my Grandmother taught me early on is that your food is only as good as the cookware in your kitchen and she had the best. She was all about great pots, pans and bakeware because, they determined how well her food would cook, fry, saute, bake and blend. Taking a hint from my grandmother, my latest investment in a Viking 9- quart. 3-in 1 Roaster is the game-changer in baked meatballs. The Viking 9- quart. 3-in 1 Roaster is so darn versatile, it is like a Cooking Vessel from the Kitchen Gods.
The Viking 9- quart. 3-in 1 Roaster can be an open roaster that you can prepare foods like TURKEY, Chicken or even roasts of Beef or Pork in. I believe that what makes the difference in the Viking 9- quart. 3-in 1 Roaster is that it is oval in shape and that is what creates a very even, all-over heating, a convection effect. The food is heated quickly and distributed EVENLY, so that all the food cooks and you don’t have to ‘wait for this one part of the food to come to temperature’ because all parts come to temperature together.
Features that make me go ‘GaGa’ over the Viking 9- quart. 3-in 1 Roaster
I love the shiny, stainless look of this roaster, it is mirror-like and Awesome, and it washes up just as nice as the first day I received it! Additionally, this is safe to 600F, dishwasher safe, and has a limited lifetime warranty, but did I mention that the LID is it’s own saute pan? It’s like the cookware gift that keeps on giving. The roaster can be used as the serving piece so straight from stove-top, or oven to table. It gets even better… The Roaster and the lid can be used for ALL cooking methods including induction cooking! When I go to cook that holiday bird, the dual-level elevated stainless wire rack will prevent the bottom from burning, and will allow me to drain keeping all that reserve behind to create the most palatable of gravies and sauces!
