Meatballs were first created around the second century B.C in China. From there, it is believed that the meatball moved across trade routes to Europe. While many people think that meatballs came to the United States from Italy, that is not the case. Spaghetti and meatballs were an invention of Italian Americans. Later, these Italian Americans would then introduce meatballs to Italy.
