WELCOME TO MANGIA BENE PASTA
Your place for traditional Italian recipes
 
These are delicious vegetarian "meatballs" made with lentils and ricotta cheese.  They have a texture and flavor similar to ground beef meatballs.  The meatballs can be served without cooking them in the sauce.  But since lentils absorb the flavors they are cooked with, the sauce does give them added flavor.
