   tomatoes, the tomato paste, the stock, the wine, the sugar, the romano, the
   salt and the oregano, and simmer the sauce, stirring occasionally, for 30
   minutes. MEATBALLS:  In a bowl combine well the bread, squeezed, the chuck,
   the eggs, the romano, the parsley, the garlic, the oregano, the salt, and

   the meatballs in the oil over high heat, turning them often. Transfer the

   stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. The dish improves in flavour if it
   is cooled and chilled, covered, overnight or up to 2 days.
