Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1.75 lbs ground meat, (anything would work here, I used a pork, beef mix)
1/2 c ricotta cheese
1 t minced garlic
1T lemon juice
1T 1/2 and 1/2 or milk
1T Italian Seasoning
1/2 t salt
1/8 t black pepper
1 c panko bread crumbs
Mix ingredients together in a large mixing bowl, I use mine hands, make sure you incorporate the ricotta into the meat mixture well.
Roll meat into balls wetting fingers with water to prevent sticking if needed and place on an ungreased cookie sheet, leave room between them so they cook evenly.
Bake for 1/2 hour, or until no longer pink in the center.
Add to pasta or make subs with your favorite sauce, or try making your own.
I like them on a roll with tomato sauce, arugula and asiago cheese, but the possibilities are endless.
