In a small bowl soak bread in water for 2 or 3 minutes, then squeeze out moisture and crumble. In a medium bowl combine bread with remaining ingredients and mix well. Form into very small balls. In a medium frying pan add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and brown meatballs on all sides. Drain before adding to sauce.
FOR THE SAUCE
While meatballs are browning, in a medium pot add all ingredients for the sauce, stirring until well combined. Add browned meatballs. Over medium heat, heat to boiling, then lower heat to medium low and simmer for 20 minutes (covered), than raise heat to medium, (leave pot slightly uncovered 1/3 uncovered) and cook an additional 15-20 minutes, until sauce has thickened.
**In the last 15 minutes of cooking the sauce, pre-heat oven to 350° (180° celsius) and cook the pasta al dente (cook a couple of minutes less since the pasta will also bake in the oven).
In a medium - large baking dish add well-drained pasta and thickened sauce, mix well to combine. Top with diced mozzarella and then parmesan cheese. Bake for approximately 20 -25 minutes in a preheated 350° (180°) oven. Enjoy!
