Seeing your request , made me smile, for a few years while I was growing up we lived in an Italian neighborhood in San Francisco , the corner market was called Mario's and our neighbors were America and Louie ( she was born on the boat on the way to America ) the wonderful aromas that filled that house
:~)))) America felt my mom need to learn to cook and she took her under her wing (since mom was scotch Irish) America started each recipe with first , you need "garlic and a parsley chopped a fine fine fine " Keeping that in mind I will try to share what was shown to me and How I make filling...
Keep in mind that the spices are approx. amounts because this has never been written down so here goes .. Enjoy, Neva after hamburger is browned , add all the ingredients and cook add olive oil if to dry, turn fire off and let cool slightly.The orginal way was to put all this thru a hand grinder ( that was my job ) I use the food processer now , you want the consistancy of not quite paste . fill and crimp edges and your ready to go ,
