What Meatballs Are Like Around the World (Slideshow)

Slide 1 of 11

The Italian meatball is one of the world’s most popular, and for good reason: It makes up one half of spaghetti and meatballs, quite possibly the world’s most notable dish. Seasoned with olive oil, oregano, parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper, you may find some studded with garlic and onion, and others with a dash of parsley, red wine, and sometimes even balsamic vinegar. They’re rarely served with pasta in Italy, but they go with it very well.
