In a medium bowl, add the bread and pour the milk over it. Let it sit for 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, add the rest of the meatball ingredients. Squeeze the bread with your hands, discarding the extra liquid and add it to the meatball mixture. Mix meatball mixture well until combined.
In a very large skillet, add the marinara sauce. Roll the meatball mixture into balls about 2 tablespoons each and place in the marinara sauce.
Bring sauce and meatballs to a about a medium to medium low heat and cook for 30-40 minutes or until meatballs are not pink in the center. Garnish with basil if desired.
Parmigiano Reggiano adds so much flavor but grated Parmesan is a substitute that can be used.
