 MMMMM---------------------TO COOK MEAT BALLS--------------------------
       4 qt Chicken broth
       8 tb Unsalted butter
     1/2 lb Mascarpone
     1/2 c  Heavy cream
            Salt & black pepper to taste
       1 pn Freshly grated nutmeg
 MMMMM--------------------------TO SERVE-------------------------------
       8 tb Parmesan cheese; grated
   Cut the prosciutto and pancetta into small pieces and remove the
   casing from the sausages. Using a meat grinder, grind together the
   prosciutto, pancetta, and sausages. Place the ground meat in a
   crockery or glass bowl, add the butter and eggs, and mix very well
   with a wooden spoon until the butter is completely incorporated. Add
   the bread crumbs and Parmesan, and season with salt and pepper. Cover
   the bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before using.
   When ready, bring the broth to a boil in a large pot over medium heat.
   Meanwhile, place a large skillet with the butter over low heat. When
   the broth reaches a boil, start shaping the meat mixture into tiny
   meat balls; a heaping tablespoon of mixture will be enough to prepare
   several. Make sure the meat balls are solid with no holes inside.
   Drop the balls into the boiling broth a few at a time, and as they
   rise to the top, tansfer them with a slotted spoon to the skillet
   containing the butter. When all the meat balls are cooked and in the
   skillet, add the mascarpone and heavy cream. Mix very well and simmer
   for 1 or 2 minutes, or until the mascarpone is completely dissolved.
   Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Mix very well, then transfer to
   a warmed serving platter. Serve immediately, with some Parmesan on
   the side.
