1 Prepare the ragù or sauce, if necessary. Then, in a large bowl, combine the beef, eggs, garlic, cheese, bread crumbs, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste. With your hands, thoroughly mix together all of the ingredients.
2 Rinse your hands with cool water to prevent sticking, then lightly shape the mixture into 2-inch balls. (If you are making meatballs to use in lasagne or baked ziti, shape the meat into tiny balls the size of a small grape.)
3 Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the meatballs and fry them until nicely browned on all sides, about 15 minutes. (Turn them carefully with tongs.) Transfer the meatballs to a plate.
4 Transfer the meatballs to the pan of ragù or tomato sauce. Simmer until cooked through, about 30 minutes. Serve hot.
