Polpette Al Sugo

Who doesn't love meatballs?! Here's an Italian take on meatballs doused in tomato sauce, aka, Polpette Al Sugo – a dish widely cherished for centuries in Italy.

What you'll need

For this signature Italian delight, we've used the highest quality ingredients – ground Certified Angus Beef, Grana Padano cheese, La Corvinia extra virgin olive oil, and for the sauce, La Corvinia peeled tomatoes. We've also used breadcrumbs and seasoning to really maximise flavor.

What is Polpette Al Sugo?

'Polpette Al Sugo' translates to 'meatballs in sauce' in Italian. It's a family dish that is loved by most in Italy, especially children. While there are a hundred ways to make polpette, this specific recipe is one of its most popular variations. The sugo is simple yet delicious, and the polpette, well... we recommend trying it for yourself - we'd rather not spoil the fun for you!

Top tips from our chef

If you haven't made meatballs before, our chef recommends kneading the beef like dough and then squeezing small pieces gently between your hands to compress the ingredients before rolling the meat in your palms until they're circular.

Polpette Al Sugo goes incredibly well with pasta, so if you'd like to push this dish to the next level, you could combine it with a generous helping of spaghetti.
