Directions:
Remove ground round and sausage from refrigerator 30-60 minutes before cooking, if possible. Place bread crumbs in large bowl and stir in the 1/3 cup water. When absorbed, blend together with eggs, garlic, 1/4 cup grated Romano, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Add meats to bread crumb mixture and combine well with fork. Form into 12-15 even balls. Lay in 1 layer in 9X13 baking dish so each is separated by about 1 inch.
Stir 1/3 cup water into crushed tomatoes and season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour tomatoes over and around meatballs. Sprinkle tops with remaining grated Romano Cheese. Bake at 425 in center of oven until meatballs are just cooked through, about 18 minutes. Serve hot.

I serve these over angel hair pasta.
