Battle of the Dishes

Battle of the Balls

No, this is not an epic battle of prairie oysters! (That's a whole 'nother blog.) Growing up, my parents were friends with an Italian family who would hold potlucks for every holiday meal. Long, folding tables would be stuffed with lasagna, rollatini, eggplant parmigiana and homemade veal meatballs coated in thick, gooey mozzarella.  

For this week's Battle of the Dishes, I checked out two local chains to see if their meatballs would live up to those delicious memories.
