    1. In a large pot combine tomato paste, water, garlic, bay leaves, basil and salt. Bring to a boil, turn heat down to low and simmer.

    3. To make the meatballs: Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Combine beef, pork, veal, Romano cheese, salt, pepper, bread crumbs, garlic, parsley and eggs; mix well. Shape into balls. Place on a baking tray that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
