    1 1/2  Pounds        Lean ground beef or turkey
      1/2  Cup           Onions -- finely diced
      1/3  Cup           Celery leaves -- finely minced
    2      Tablespoons   Green pepper -- minced
    1      Teaspoon      Salt
    1      Tablespoon    Italian seasoning
    1                    Garlic clove -- minced
    3      Cups          Bread crumbs
    2                    Eggs -- beaten
 
     Use meatball/bagel die. Put ground beef, salt, pepper, spices, celery,
 onion, green epper and about one cup of bread crumbs in mixing bin.  Mix
 lightly. Add eggs and extrude.  Ad bread crumbs by the tablespoonful 
 through the
 top grates as necessary to keep the mixture extruding and from bunching up
 around the blades.  Extrude in 1 1/2 pieces and roll each into a ball. 
 Saute in
 a pan with 2 tb. olive oil until browned, or put on broiler rack and bake 
 in a
 350~ oven for about 30 minutes or until browned and firm.   The oven 
 method is
 most efficient if doing a large quantity for the freezer. If to be frozen, 
 cool
 and freeze in zip-loc bags or rigid containers in meal-sized batches. To 
 serve
 with pasta, add to Spaghetti Sauce (bottled or homemade) and simmer for 30
 minutes.  From:  Popiel pasta machine recipes
