This spicy Sicilian meatball Panzanella recipe gets its inspiration from Tuscany where it originated. Made with spicy Sicilian meatballs, the secret to making great Panzanella is day-old bread. The slightly dry bread soaks up all the delicious flavors of the meatballs, cherry tomatoes, onion, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Don’t believe us? Ask any Italian nonna!
