  3. 1 1/2 pounds mixed ground beef, pork and veal
  4. 1/2 small onion, minced
  5. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  6. 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  7. 1 teaspoon minced oregano
  8. 1 egg, lightly beaten

  10. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  11. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  12. 3 1/2 cups marinara sauce

  1. In a small bowl, soak the bread crumbs in the milk. In a large bowl, mix the ground meat with the soaked bread crumbs, the onion, garlic, parsley, oregano, egg, salt and pepper.
