Using your hands, lightly form the mixture into meatballs.

Pour equal amounts of vegetable oil and olive oil into a large skillet.

Remove the meatballs to a plate covered with paper towels. Discard the oil but don’t clean the pan.

For the sauce, heat the olive oil in the same pan. Add the onion and saute over medium heat until translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute.
Add the wine and cook on high heat, scraping up all the brown bits in the pan, until almost all the liquid evaporates, about 3 minutes. Stir in the Fresh tomatoes, tomato pure, parsley, salt, and pepper.

Return the meatballs to the sauce, cover, and simmer on the lowest heat for 15 to 20 minutes, until the meatballs are cooked through.

Serve hot on cooked linguine and pass the grated Parmesan.
