SAUCE: In a heavy saucepan cook the onion and the garlic in the oil over low heat, stirring, for 2 minutes, add the parsley, the basil, the tomatoes, the tomato paste, the stock, the wine, the sugar, the romano, the salt and the oregano, and simmer the sauce, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. MEATBALLS: In a bowl combine well the bread, squeezed, the chuck, the eggs, the romano, the parsley, the garlic, the oregano, the salt, and the pepper and form the mixture into 10 meatballs. In a large skillet brown the meatballs in the oil over high heat, turning them often.
